Webinar recording from June 8, 2021, featuring Amy Lerman, MS, CCC-SLP

Children who have communication delays and learning differences often struggle socially. They may miss other people's non-verbal cues, misread others' intentions, or fail to think about their communication partners' perspectives. Developing social competence takes direct teaching and practice. This 1-hour virtual adult education session features speech-language pathologist and Social Thinking Specialist, Amy Lerman, who teaches you how to help your student find better success in social situations.
