We are having an Open House on Monday, October 12th at 10 am. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our program! The event will begin with our Head of School giving an overview of our program followed by student and adult guided tours of the campus and classrooms.
Meet your fellow parents in the Oakland Dining Room right after drop off for our first parent association meeting. Karen Bowles from the Etiquette School of the Commonwealth will be our first speaker. Learn about lots of exciting upcoming events.
Please join Oakland at PVCC’s Dickinson Hall Auditorium to hear Michelle Garcia Winner speak about Social Thinking.
Social Thinking was born out of necessity as a way to reach those [students] who needed more information than just what social skill to use. They needed to know why they should bother to use that skill at all, or even interface with others in their environment.
[Michelle] coined the term “Social Thinking®” in the mid-1990s and continued to evolve the Social Thinking framework that today includes information, vocabulary, curriculum, and strategies that help individuals with social learning challenges become better social thinkers.
