"There are many reasons why some children struggle to make friends and find themselves on the sidelines, in timeout, or ignored by their peers. For them, having a playdate or participating in a group activity does not come naturally... "Getting From Me to We" teaches you about the underlying causes of social skill delays and how to identify where your child is developmentally on the social skills ladder. It includes profiles of children who illustrate a wide variety of isolating behaviors, along with parent-child activities that encourage joint attention, eye contact, social interaction and other foundational skills that are necessary to form connections and friendships. These methods can benefit all children aged 3 to 7 who are struggling with social skills with or without diagnoses such as autism, ADHD, anxiety or language deficits." - BOOK JACKET
