Rusty Social Skills Training For Kids Who Are Falling Behind
The pandemic could have a profound impact on our children’s future, including development in many key areas such as speech and interpersonal skills. A May 2020 Gallup poll found that 3 in 10 parents with school-aged children said their child is “already experiencing harm” to their emotional or mental health because of social distancing and closures. Another 14 percent indicated their children were approaching their limits. Without appropriate social skills training, children could have potentially irreversible effects down the line from learning disabilities to health effects.
The good news is parents can turn things around by getting a handle on it now.
Rusty Social Skills For Kids Who Are Falling Behind was created to help lessen the impact of the pandemic on our children’s social emotional well-being and to provide a unique opportunity to further the social recovery process and jumpstart the 2021-22 school year.
Are Our Kids Going to be OK? What Happens Without Adequate Social Emotional Support?
Social distancing has caused children and teens to lose valuable opportunities to practice their social skills, and make friends. The data clearly shows that humans require social networks and interaction. But what happens when children are starved of socialization or their mental health is not treated? What impact does this have on society?
Parents often lack the social and emotional resources to help our child(ren) adapt to this new world. In this product, Caroline Maguire, M.Ed. will advise parents on what they can do NOW at home to strengthen their children’s social skills.

Research shows that what happens in a child’s early years impacts them for a lifetime. While childhood acts as a particularly critical phase, we must recognize that development continues throughout our adult lives.
