Routines and predictability are often the cornerstone of a successful school year but social situations can be difficult. “Make Social Learning Stick! How to Guide and Nurture Social Competence Through Everyday Routines and Activities” by Elizabeth A. Sautter is a resource for families and schools to help children navigate social situations when often the hidden rules are at least as important as the stated ones. The book includes many tips and tricks for finding teachable moments in your child's day for all sorts of social situations like playing at the playground, meal times, during transitions and even celebrating holidays like Thanksgiving.
