For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

Social communication is defined as knowing how to talk and interact with others, often referred to as pragmatics. Autism is characterized as having deficits in social communication. This course will focus on explaining how social communication deficits may present, some of the challenges individuals can face in their daily interactions with others at home, in the community, and at school and what can be done to support these individuals. Specific evidence-based practices (EBPs) that support the development of skills and the understanding of social situations will be discussed. Throughout the training participants will engage in hands on activities and analyze videos to help better understand the content being presented. By the end of the training, participants will be able to give at least two explanations for social communication deficits, identify possible challenges in various environments, and label at least two EBPs to support skill development. Please note: this course will be offered in two 3-hour sessions on two separate days.

Intended Audience

Special education teachers, general education teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, parents, and clinicians.
