The AAPC newly published guide for caregivers and professionals to support social and emotional development in children, Make Social Learning Stick! How to Guide and Nurture Social Competence Through Everyday Routines and Activities by Elizabeth A. Sautter, MA, CCC-SLP, has been honored with the Mom’s Choice Award seal of approval.

The Mom’s Choice Awards (MCA) is a globally recognized program for establishing the benchmark of excellence in family-friendly media, products and services. These products and services are evaluated by a respected panel of judges bound by a strict code of ethics. This award ensures expert and objective analysis of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal and cost.

Make Social Learning Stick! provides the guidance that can be used as a “go-to” manual for parents, caregivers and professionals to support social and emotional skills in children. The user-friendly, how-to activities act as a “social learning diet” of suggestions that can be used in everyday life to increase verbal and nonverbal language, listening skills, understanding of hidden rules, perspective taking, executive functioning, and more. The activities presented in this book are recipes for social and emotional learning for which parents, teachers, and therapists typically already have the ingredients. With close to 200 fun and easy activities, including contributions from leading experts such as Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP, Kari Dunn Buron, MsEd, Leah Kuypers, MAEd, OTR/L, Emily Rubin, MS, CCC-SLP, Sarah Ward, MS, CCC-SLP, and Pamela Wolfberg, PhD, this book offers numerous ways to embrace teachable moments throughout daily routines.
