Autism Services – How to Improve My Child’s/Youth’s Social Skills
January 17, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
As part of foundational family services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a family support coordinator after attending a workshop, to help you apply the workshop content to your specific family situation.
This workshop has been developed to help parents and caregivers create opportunities for social skills development using some general Applied Behaviour Analysis strategies.
As a result of participating in the workshop, you will be able to:
- Describe the social styles and explain how social skills may be different for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder.
- Describe ways to enhance children and youth’s environment to encourage social opportunities and development.
- Describe how to plan a play date or social “hang out” time.
