Educational Meetings

Our education meetings are open to all members of the community, and provide an opportunity to meet other parents and caregivers. We are always looking for volunteers to provide light snacks for meetings — please consider signing up. 

UPCOMING MEETINGS:

"Quirky, Confident, Quiet… or Cause for Concern
Understanding Social Development in Children"

Social competency provides the foundation for personal and professional relationships throughout our lives. Children who lag behind their peers in developing social skills can struggle in and out of the classroom. Presenter Alison Ratner Mayer will provide an overview of social development in children, discuss warning signs that a child might need extra help, and share strategies for parents to support skill development.

Alison Ratner Mayer, LICSW, is a Needham-based child and adolescent therapist who specializes in running social skills group therapy for children, teens, and young adults ages 4-22.
