Students with ASD are increasingly included in daily school activities. These daily school activities center around social interaction. Recess, lunch, hallway transitions, before or after school, clubs and extracurricular activities – once students with ASD are included, these are prime opportunities to teach and support social skill acquisition. This webinar will provide strategies that can be implemented in naturalistic environments to help students with ASD go beyond inclusion to experiencing social success.
Do you remember a time that you were excluded from a social group or activity when you were in school? How did that make you feel? Isolated, anxious, frustrated, lonely, or depressed? To be excluded from a social group or activity can bring up negative feelings and emotions that can be prevented with the implementation of individualized supports and/or strategies. Educators can step in to support positive social interactions and prevent social isolation. Join us to learn different strategies on how to include students with ASD in school activities and build a sense of community with their peers.
Individuals with ASD often have difficulty navigating social situations, especially at school. This webinar will be a “how to” guide for designing effective social skills training programs using a small group approach. We will provide relevant examples and guide participants through the steps required to develop, implement and monitor the effectiveness of social skills intervention.
