International School Manila is excited and delighted to announce a free workshop for parents delivered by the renowned communication expert Michelle Garcia Winner on Monday 5th September at 8-10am.

Michelle is coming over from the US to deliver a weekend long workshop and then spend two days exclusively with ISM families and teachers.

The work of Michelle and her colleagues is often referred to and shared on this blog.  We use Social Thinking materials in school with our LS students and the Superflex curriculum in particular is much loved by many in the Elementary School community.

The parent workshop is for any parent who would like to know more about communication with children.  Does your child struggle to:

  • join groups and make friends
  • follow conversations
  • accept the ideas of others
  • deal with disappointment
  • take risks
  • read body language and facial expression?

If so, then this group will be of interest to you.  Please contact Angela Reilly on to register your interest and visit to learn more about Michelle’s work.
