Social Interactives: Using iPad Apps to Promote Social Communication (Live Webinar)
12/1/2016
Format(s): Live Webinar, Live Webinar (Group)
CEUs: CEU approval in process
1.5
Students who have difficulties with social learning and communication often have an affinity for technology. But how can clinicians use the iPad as a tool rather than just a toy? This webinar will discuss the features of apps that work well for social communication intervention, namely the use of video, audio, and visual support structures for interaction. The course will give exemplars and foster clinicians’ evaluation and selection of apps that support intervention activities such as play, use of socially relevant pictures and videos, and use of visual creation tools for video modeling, social narratives, scripts, and other visual supports.

Success for Students With High-Functioning Autism
Format(s): Streaming Video
CEUs: 0.35
3.5
This course focuses on the impact of Theory of Mind on effective social-pragmatic communication for children and adolescents with high-functioning autism. The course describes the typical Theory of Mind deficits among this population – including tact, proxemics, social rules, egocentricity, naiveté, and jocularity – as well as social communication deficits and issues associated with social-emotional regulation that this population often exhibits. The course then explores the unique assessments and interventions that can address the specific deficits and challenges of students with high-functioning autism, which are distinct from those of students with more severe autism. The course discusses in detail best practices in social-pragmatic assessment and evidence-based treatment strategies and techniques that SLPs can put into practice to equip students to overcome social skills deficits.

Social and Academic Success for Children With ASD
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
This journal self-study addresses research and treatment ideas to improve the social and academic success of verbal elementary-age children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The self-study includes articles on two narrative intervention programs designed to improve the narrative abilities of children with ASD, which offer suggestions for how to implement such programs in clinical practice. It also includes a study that investigates how children with ASD understand and use gestures to identify nonpresent objects, with the intent of informing the design of intervention approaches for improved gesture use. A fourth article discusses teaching break requests to a child with ASD to help decrease problem behaviors and increase task engagement, which may improve the child’s achievement of treatment goals. Clinicians can use this information clinically to address the narrative and gesture skills of children with ASD and incorporate techniques to help address problem behaviors that may interfere with progress in treatment.

This course examines The PLAY Project®, an evidence-based home intervention and consultation program for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

The presenter explores the program’s main assessment and intervention principles, highlighting specific techniques and activities. The course also presents multiple case studies as useful examples of children's progress in treatment, the practical challenges of implementing a program, overcoming funding obstacles, and the importance of multicultural awareness in ASD intervention, including the adoption of the model for Ohio’s Part C Early Intervention System and a project that implemented the program with a low-income, underserved population in the Caribbean island country Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Turning Problem Behavior Into Effective Communication
Format(s): Streaming Video
CEUs: 0.05
0.5
All behavior is learned, and most behavior is communicative. Many learners with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have difficulty communicating basic and complex needs, which often results in inappropriate behavior to convey messages. Professionals can support students with ASD by examining contextual features of inappropriate behavior in order to understand its message and then teaching students how to use more effective and efficient communication skills instead. While seemingly straightforward, this functional approach to improving communication skills requires careful consideration of several critical factors. In this session, Jason Travers will explore the communicative nature of behavior and provide suggestions for simple interventions to support socially appropriate communication that improves behavior and quality of life.

Language Intervention in Autism: The Implications of Neurobiological Research
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, On Demand Webinar
CEUs: 0.2
2.0
Understanding the current research on the neurobiological basis of autism provides SLPs with the knowledge needed to address questions from parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This course discusses the progress being made in identifying early biomarkers for ASD, which may help SLPs in early identification of children at risk for ASD. The course also discusses what the neurobiology of ASD suggests about how individuals with ASD process information differently and how these differences can be accommodated by making changes in the environmental input controlled by SLPs.
