A cardinal feature of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is impairment in social interaction and communication. We know that with effective instructional strategies, children and teens with ASD can learn a range of skills to successfully engage with their social world. What social skills should we teach? How do we teach them? How will we know the interventions are effective? Drawing on social motivation theory, this 2-day interactive super-workshop will prepare participants to effectively and systematically teach this vast group of skills!
This workshop is appropriate for K-12 classroom teachers, resource teachers, learning support teachers, case-managers, and other professionals who are not yet familiar with assessing and teaching social skills. The workshop is particularly beneficial for those who can attend as a school team (e.g., the classroom teacher, case manager, and EAs for a student with social skill difficulties).
