This article rings true. Especially those with disabilities have trouble with social skills, and their lives are deeply impacted by the inability or lack of training in how to socially ‘get along.’ This has been a major focus in my teaching and mentoring.

Comment on How was your day? by Matt Crevin https://www.talkshop.company/blog/how-was-your-day/#comment-5 Tue, 30 Oct 2018 00:04:19 +0000 https://www.talkshop.company/?p=372#comment-5 In reply to Stew Jenkins.

Hi Stew, Great to hear from you! Happy to talk anytime to elaborate but my quick thought, without knowing any particulars, is to find the right time and right place, for you and Javi to talk. For example, for me and my dad, he would take me to Glorietta and we would play catch, shoot baskets or some other activity he knew I liked, away from the house. I didn’t know it at the time but he was getting me while I was in my own zone and MY preferred activity. Then he would ease into the conversation he wanted to have. It worked! For me as a dad with my two boys I do the same thing…I talk with them at a time and a place I know I have their attention. I realize this may not be as easy for today’s kids but worth a shot! Again, happy to chat anytime to talk in more detail.

Comment on How was your day? by Stew Jenkins https://www.talkshop.company/blog/how-was-your-day/#comment-4 Mon, 29 Oct 2018 19:03:32 +0000 https://www.talkshop.company/?p=372#comment-4 Hey Matt, it’s Stew from Glorietta. This looks like a cool business. I ask this question of my kids, Javier 17 and Marisol, 13, every day when they come back from school. My daughter will frequently give me couple of sentences about her day. But my son, Javi, invariably says “fine” goes to his room and shuts the door. (and sits on his beedc and looks at either his phone or his laptop screen. Do you have any suggestions for drawing him out more or finding a way to converse with him briefly? He’s a good communicator when he wants to pass on some information or talk about something he’s passionate about. But when I ask him how his day was I can feel the psychic “weight” that he exudes when he gets that question. Any ideas you have would be appreciated.
