Social skills like listening, identifying feelings and communicating feelings well are central to creating and maintaining relationships. School Counselors teach social skills to classrooms full of students on a regular basis. Ashley Smith, Acorn’s practicum student for the semester, will modify these classes for a more focused experience for your child. With Ashley’s experience with students as a school counselor and former teacher, she will help each child make the most of the hour. Each week will have it’s own focus-identifying feelings, healthy anger expression, making friends, and letting people know who you are. It may sound simple, but many of these parents are still figuring out!
To sign up, email Christy Graham, Ashley’s on-site supervisor. She will sign you up and notify Ashley to expect you.
