Getting From Me to We – How to Help Young Children Fit In and Make Friends
Many children age seven and under who struggle with social skills—especially those with autism, ADHD, anxiety, language delays, or behavior issues—find themselves perpetually on the sidelines, in timeout, or ignored by their peers in school and on the playground. It’s incredibly painful and worrisome for their parents to witness, but fortunately, they are not powerless to help their kids improve their social IQ. Written by a speech-language pathologist and researcher with expertise in socially at risk kids, the book includes profiles of children who illustrate a wide variety of characteristics and behaviors that lead to social isolation, along with effective, well-designed activities that encourage joint attention, eye contact, and social interaction. Beyond its appeal to parents, Getting from Me to We will also garner interest from counselors and teachers as well. Shonna Tuck is a Speech-Language Pathologist with special expertise in early identification and intervention for children who are at social risk. Her book is based on 20 years of research, advocacy, and a passion for helping children and their families.
