Amazing March Meeting with Melinda Boring

Last night’s workshop, “When Socialization IS an Issue”,  provided a comprehensive overview of ways parents can assess and improve their child’s social skills. Melinda’s presentation included years of experience as a speech/language pathologist and homeschool mom. She shared many illustrations of her observations and practices with her own children over the years, and gave our group a wide array of recommended resources and games to target and address problem areas. She stayed and answered questions as long as was needed, and judging by the time we all packed up and left, it was clear that many homeschoolers were blessed by all the wisdom and knowledge Melinda, Scott, and Josh had to offer. It was a great time of information, encouragement, and fellowship!

Many thanks to PEACH members who volunteered to help with this meeting by welcoming visitors, running the sound board, and hosting the speaker and her family at their home.

PEACH members can access the outline and recommendations Melinda provided by logging in to their PEACHOnline account.

PEACH hosts Melinda Boring in March

PEACH is hosting a workshop, “When Socialization IS an Issue” by Melinda Boring for our March 14th meeting. She shares her personal and professional experiences with humor and compassion. Her workshops offer practical suggestions and fresh perspectives that can help newbies as well as  experienced homeschoolers.

This particular seminar, “When Socialization IS an Issue” will assist parents with these questions about their child’s behavior:

  • Does your child have difficulty when trying to join an activity?
  • Does your child fail to make eye contact, or respond inconsistently to others’ attempts at interaction?
  • Do they tend to monopolize conversations?
  • Does your child have a limited number of subjects he/she prefers to discuss?

Parents of children with special needs such as Learning Disabilities, Autism, or Attention Deficit Disorder will find the information presented in this workshop particularly helpful. Special needs children often require extra practice and specific instructions to develop important social skills, and  Melinda will help parents learn how to identify specific aspects of social skills and ways to gently teach them through daily activities and games.

Melinda has been a regular columnist for the Ohio Home School Companion, a bimonthly publication of Christian Home Educators of Ohio. She is the author of  Heads Up Helping!, and is owner and president of  Heads Up! She has a degree in education and a M.A. in speech/language pathology, and brings a wealth of information from over 17 years as a homeschooler and 25 years as a speech/language pathologist.
