How Parents Can Support Their Children’s Social Skills in this Post-Pandemic World
Children lost 1-2 years of in-person peer interactions during the Covid 19 pandemic. Children with a history of anxiety and ADHD, and those who may demonstrate awkward social interactions, are at an increased risk of not achieving the most fulfilling age-appropriate interactions with peers.
Join NewYork-Presbyterian’s multidisciplinary panel for a virtual presentation that will focus on the following areas to help children develop/improve friendships:
- How to help your child learn the “give and take” of interacting with others
- Listening and speaking skills
- Accepting positive feedback as well as constructive criticism
- Managing negative feelings
During this presentation, parents and caregivers will learn tips to support the development of these skills. We will also share an overview of the Social Skills Group Program available at the NYP Westchester Behavioral Health and Adolescent Child Outpatient Clinic.
