Help My Social Relationships

How to support the development of attention, social interaction and play skills, to help children form relationships

Are you looking for ways to help children's play and social interactions?

Do you want to help them develop their social awareness?

For some children, it can be difficult navigating day to day interactions. From new environments with strangers, to being with familiar friends and teachers at school, these interactions and social expectations can be a challenge.
To help children form and sustain relationships, it is important to support their development of play and social interaction. 
It can be important to help a child understand the social world around them, including those often tricky ‘social norms’ and non-verbal cues that don’t just come ‘naturally’. With these practical strategies and helpful ‘tools’ at hand, you can build ways to make social experiences fun and beneficial for children.
This short course breaks down the learning of turn-taking, play and social skills to help teach children these valuable skills that will support them to form meaningful relationships.
