Free Webinar Replay: A Parents’ Guide to Social Skills Strategies for Children with ADHD or Autism (or Both)
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn social skills strategies for children with ADHD or autism (or both), Mark Bertin, M.D.
Strong friendships are a vital support for a child’s overall happiness and resilience, from elementary school through high school. Both ADHD and autism affect peer relationships at those ages–and many children have symptoms of both. This can have serious and heartbreaking consequences.
How can parents sort out whether ADHD or autism is causing the social challenges their children face? More importantly, how can parents best support social skills growth and success? Should they try behavioral therapy or speech language therapy, individual or group therapy? What role does medication play in sharpening social skills? What can parents do at home to foster a child’s social abilities? The good news is that there are solutions, strategies, and hope for families living with these conditions.
In this webinar, parents will learn:
- The impact of ADHD on social emotional development
- How autism affects social and emotional skills
- Which clinical interventions best support social emotional abilities
- How to support social emotional skills at home
- How to decide between the various options for intervention available for children with ADHD and autism.
