Did you miss our webinar on Everyday Activities to Support the Social Development of Children?

You can view the recording here:

“Parent-child communication can play a significant role in a child’s development of social skills.  The communication used at home is likely to transfer into the child’s social relationships in the future. Providing a supportive and safe space for dialogue and the ability to work through difficulties in a meaningful, intentional, and nurturing way will only help foster successful relationships down the road.”

– Lucy Daniels School teacher

“Our children don’t learn these skills because they are being taught ‘this is what you say and this is how you do it.’ The vast majority of social skill learning is in the lived experience of how they are treated and how they are encouraged to be curious about their internal worlds and others’ internal worlds.”

– Lucy Daniels Center clinician
