Event description
A Psychologist-led Parent Group teaching parents how to help their child navigate their peer relationships

About this Event

Kuehnel Psychological Associates will provide a 3-session parent training course (9 hours of training) on social skills for children with Social Skills challenges.

During this new program being developed exclusively for Norfolk SEPAC parents, Dr. Carolyn Kuehnel will spend 9 hours with participating parents over three evening sessions providing tactical training on how we as parents can support our children as they navigate specific social interactions during their elementary school years. Dr. Kuehnel taught a similar course for many years at the Integrated Center for Child Development (ICCD) in Canton and had exceptional results from the program.
