Evergreen Child Development Center offers parent class

FARMINGTON - The 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.

The Evergreen Child Development Center, part of Evergreen Behavioral Services, promotes the optimal development and abilities of children and adolescents with a wide range of developmental and behavioral concerns including: autism spectrum disorders, Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, and difficulties with learning and school performance. Dr. Silverstein, a board-certified developmental-behavioral pediatrician, leads the Center.
