Autism Services – Learning @ Home: Social Skills

What?

Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for parents and caregivers! These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources, and increase overall parent capacity. This online workshop is for parents living in Ontario with a valid OAP registration number.

Social Skills 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 part of Foundational Family Services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a Family Support Coordinator following this presentation to help you apply the content of this workshop to your specific family situation.

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
