Registration Open for LASARD New Orleans Workshop for High School Educators and Family Members
Breaking Barriers and Building Connections: Social Skills for Life
Individuals on the autism spectrum experience social challenges. Developing social interaction skills is a critical need – an important piece of a student’s individual education plan that is crucial to student success in school, at home, and in the community. Teaching and supporting social interaction skills may seem somewhat overwhelming. Where do I begin? What do I teach? How do I teach it? Where do I teach it? This workshop, geared to high school professionals and family members, will provide you with how-tos for evaluating, supporting, and teaching social interaction skills in school, home, and community settings.
This workshop will be held on November 2, 2017 at the LSUHSC Human Development Center, 411 S. Prieur St., New Orleans, LA 70112. Registration will be from 8:30 to 9:00, and the workshop will run from 9:00 to 3:00 with a break for lunch on your own. The workshop is free and open to anyone interested until all seats are taken. CEUs will be provided. Parking information will be sent prior to the event.
