Helping children with social thinking
Sussex - Parents United is a consortium of schools from the area, Arrowhead, Hamilton, Hartland/Lakeside, Kettle Moraine, Lake Country, Menomonee Falls, Merton, Mukwonago, Muskego/Norway, North Lake, Oconomowoc, Pewaukee, Richmond, Stone Bank, Swallow, Watertown and Waukesha presents "Friendly Is Not The Same As Having A Friend" with guest speaker and autism specialist Mary Graczyk-McMullen from 6 to 8:30 p.m. April 24 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center, Pewaukee.
The development of social learning and ability to think socially are critical elements needed for successful social participation.
Graczyk-McMullen discusses a variety of ways to help teach "social thinking" concepts leading to the development of meaningful friendships including "How we think with our eyes" which helps figure out other people's thoughts, intentions and emotions. Children with typical development acquire this foundation with ease; however, those with social learning challenges often do not intuitively understand and use these concepts without direct teaching.
This is a free program for parents, professionals and interested community members. Preregistration is not required, but appreciated.

This musical's interweaving of music, drama and dance exemplifies types of arts integration that takes place at various grade levels throughout the year at Woodside.
