Art of Friendship Seminar: How to Provide Neurodiverse Children with Compassionate Social Coaching for Social Miscues and Challenging Emotions

Hosted by the Art of Friendship.

A FREE live workshop empowering parents, educators, and professionals to help children socialize, cope, and thrive. In-person AND virtual remote attendance options.

Children with autism, ADHD, and learning differences are often misunderstood and receive controlling or punitive corrections for behaviors that are not motivated by bad intentions. Neurodivergent social challenges are usually caused by misunderstanding social cues or unwritten social rules/expectations or overwhelming emotions.

You’ll learn problem-solving scripts that simultaneously honors the child’s uniqueness, gets them thinking about ways to engage with the world more successfully, and cope with feelings.
