For anyone who missed our recent Social Skills Strategies for Children with Special Needs webinar, presented by Dr. Aarti Nair, Ph.D. of the UCLA PEERS® Clinic, you can find the recording above and presentation slides below!

Social and behavior skills are essential for lifelong success, but children with special needs often struggle with these skills.

During this webinar, we focus on parent-assisted strategies to help children develop essential social skills, including friendship fundamentals, cooperative playtime and maintaining appropriate body boundaries.

You can find the social skills webinar presentation slides here.
