Autism: Supporting Social Cognition in Schools

An Online Conference

April 23–May 5, 2014

This is the online conference for SLPs who want to use state-of-the-art assessment and intervention strategies to improve the quality of life for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Working with children with ASD can be challenging. In this online conference, led by Patricia Prelock, PhD, CCC-SLP, you'll get the tools to assess the social cognition of this population while learning strategies that support participation in the educational arena.

Get the skills to:

  • Identify participation challenges in children with ASD related to impairments in social cognition
  • Develop treatment goals that support the social communication and social cognition of this population
  • Develop social stories that are designed to increase perspective-taking in social situations
  • Use comic strip conversations to increase the clients' awareness of the thoughts and feelings of others
  • Assess joint attention in minimally verbal children and implement strategies to support social communication using speech generating devices

This online conference will help you make clinical decisions that foster growth in social communication and theory of mind in children with ASD.
