The Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for caregivers. These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources and increase overall parent capacity.
Social Skills is an online workshop for parents and caregivers. This workshop has been developed to help parents and caregivers create opportunities for social skills development using some general Applied Behavioural Analysis strategies. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
1. Describe the social styles and explain how social skills may be different for children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
2. Describe ways to enhance child and youth’s environment to encourage social opportunities and development.
3. Describe how to plan a play date or social “hang out” time.
