Evergreen Child Development Center Offers Parent Class
October 15, 2009The Evergreen Child Development Center invites parents to a workshop on social understanding happening on Tuesday, October 20, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Walden Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital. Mardie Porter, a special education teacher at Mallett School, will present a session titled Social Stories™.
Social Stories™ is a tool for teaching social understanding and is useful for children of all ages and abilities. Each social story describes a situation or skill, such as changes in routine, getting dressed, or waiting in line. The user of the story can practice a situation ahead of time and visualize possible responses and choices. During this parent information session participants will learn to write Social Stories™. All participants will be able to create stories to take home. Come and learn about this exciting, user-friendly, low-tech tool!
The class is free but a $5 donation is greatly appreciated. Light refreshments will be served. For more information or to RSVP contact Sandy Richard at 778-0035.
