Social Issues in a Classroom
Taking your child to a class this can apply to music class, swimming class, dance class, gymnastics, karate or any other class your child might take.
Pick a class that is age appropriate for your child. Call the owner/teacher of the class, introduce yourself and tell them about your child and your child’s needs. Most places welcome children of all walks of life. Ask if you and your child can attend a trial class. Before you leave for the class explain to your child where you are going and what is going to happen there. Bring your child’s favorite reinforcer and praise good behavior.
It might take your child a while to get used to a new place, a new social situation or a class. Take it one step at a time. Plan ahead and help your child deal with new situations by making a picture/written schedule/outline of the new activity. Don’t give up!
