Social Skills Group Coaching for Parents and Adults
Play Better Book Club 
Sign up Process- This group is free to Maryland CHADD Chapter participants and donations can be made through our CHADD chapters link. To sign up for this group please email Coach Juliana at easyadhd@gmail.com

Group make up—In the event Coach Juliana cannot make a monthly session, she will reschedule the session to be held before August 2024.

Format—This book club is held virtually using Zoom. Each group session focuses on an assigned chapter reading and discussion questions centered around the reading.

Recommended Material— It is recommended for participants to purchase a copy of the book “Why Will No One Play with Me” by Caroline Maguire

Group size- Maximum of 20 people.

Group expectations—You will want to present that this is not one-on-one coaching, and therefore sometimes we have to keep answers high level or ask the parent to give 1-2 sentences about the problem. Members are welcome to schedule coaching time
with you one-on-one.

Extending group— Coach Juliana can extend the group and renegotiate the price once the group is complete.

Duration —1 hour per meeting.

Confidentiality—Group members are expected to keep any information shared in the group confidential so that all group members feel more comfortable sharing or discussing sensitive issues. Confidentiality is critical for most support groups. Inform and ask that group members agree that information shared at the meetings is not to be repeated outside the group.

4. Forgive each other’s mistakes and own our own conduct.
5. Allow each member the opportunity to speak or to stay silent depending on their individual preference.
