Rocky Hill School will begin its 2014-15 Lower School Parent Coffee Lecture Series on Tuesday, October 7, 2014. The School welcomes Alison Anderson to present Social Cognition: What is it and how can it impact children?
Ms. Anderson’s presentation will familiarize parents with the concept of social cognition and how deficits in this area impact a child’s ability to successfully and independently manage the social, emotional, and academic demands of the classroom and the home. We will look at strategies that help support those students who struggle to solve social problems, self-regulate, understand multiple perspectives, and achieve social success.
The presentation is free and open to the public and will take place in the Carriage House Library from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
