Description of Presentation

Does your child have challenges playing nicely with others? Is sharing, communicating, and expressing emotions a difficult task? Does your child tend to play by himself or herself and not interact with other children? Join Rec2Connect as they discuss common challenges with preschoolers (both typically-developing children and those with special needs). In this podcast, they provide simple strategies to encourage children to develop their social skills and stop behaviors such as hitting, being a sore loser when playing games, whining and playing solo while ignoring those around him or her.
