2020 Adult AM Workshops
Social Communication Supports in Adults with ASD
Kathryn Greenslade and Amy Frechette will present three evidence-based strategies to support the social communication of adults with ASD: social stories, peer and video modeling, and feedback using shared vocabulary. For each strategy, we will clearly describe the strategy and how to implement it in the real world. We also will provide real life examples to show how these evidence-based practices can work. At the end, we will guide small group discussions about how to apply the practices to specific cases.
