Autism: Supporting Social Cognition in Schools

The early bird rate expires 7/31/14.

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).

Description

Working with children with ASD can be challenging. In this online conference, Dr. Patricia Prelock and other expert speakers give you the tools to assess the social cognition of this population while learning strategies that support participation in the educational arena.

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

Learning Outcomes

After attending, you will be able 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
