SOS: Socially Optimizing Situations (Autism) June 4, 2024 at 9:30 am

In my over 33 years of working in the field, I have seen students with autism struggle with social skills and how this struggle affects their success in life (both in school and work). I have experienced success in the use of the strategies I will be sharing and have anecdotal experiences that I will also share. Some of the strategies I have used successfully are the following: visuals, video modeling, scripting, social stories, role-playing, checklists, and more. I will bring samples and demonstrate them.

Key Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to describe the various social deficits that many with autism might experience.
Participants will be able to list a minimum of 3 ways to use visuals to support social situations for a student with autism.
Participants will be able to describe a way to use video modeling to teach social skills.
