Edmonton psychologist Corinne Eckert offers regular Training in Core Social Skills programs throughout the year. To meet demand, the group has added a new program called the 1-1 Social Coaching Program. Based on their Training in Core Social Skills program, children/teens will get the foundational learning of social cognition and, building on this; learning skills related to understanding nonverbal communication (their own and others’); being successful in verbal communication; also handling difficult emotions and social problem-solving. In this program therapists can: individualize the sessions to the child’s particular needs bring in more concrete examples from the child’s own environment have the parents involved in each session, to get updated feedback on the application of skills in the child’s life and also to provide weekly parent coaching tips offer fun social coaching practice at the end of each session with another child and their social coach It may be an excellent fit for a child for whom regular group programs are not the best fit because: the groups are full the start date is missed the child needs a different pace of learning the group program dates/times do not work for the family the child is not emotionally/physically regulated enough yet to learn effectively in a group environment the child needs greater amounts of individualized support For more information please contact Corinne Eckert Child and Adolescent Psychology Phone: (780) 454-4634 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org *These psychological services may be reimbursed through extended health insurance program.

There’s still time to register for Camp Abilities Programs for this summer! Does your child struggle with managing their emotions or making social connections? LD Edmonton’s Camp Abilities and Teen Camp Abilities programs are structured for kids ages 8-18** who are struggling with keeping friends and interacting with their peers. Participants will learn social skills in a safe setting in the morning and then practice what they have learned out in the community in the afternoon. Some families are able to obtain FSCD (Family Support for Children with Disabilities) funding for their child to attend camp depending on the determined needs of their child. Contact your FSCD worker to see if your child qualifies. Children ages 8 and 12 years old August 21st – 25th Daily 9:30 am to 3:00 pm Teen Camp Abilities – Teens ages 13 to 18 August 14 to August 18 Daily 9:30 am to 3:00 pm For more information visit LD Edmonton online.
