This 92Y Wonderplay Conference presentation addresses major issues in early social development and the teacher’s role in supporting it. Four different kinds of social difficulties that are related to positive social relationships will be addressed: insufficient impulse control, bullying, shyness and “off-the-wall” behaviors. Strategies useful for teachers for each of these kinds of difficulties will be outlined, described and illustrated and some suggestions for parents will be included.
