Description

Description: Deficits in social skills are considered one of the defining challenges among young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), yet few evidence-based social skills programs exist for higher functioning youth with ASD. This seminar will provide an overview of the social skills needed for making and keeping friends. You will be given tips on how to provide social coaching using concrete rules and steps of social behavior derived from the widely popular UCLA PEERS® program, the only known evidence-based social skills program for teens and young adults with ASD.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be familiar with:

  1. Social deficits and consequences of peer rejection in autism spectrum disorder
  2. Limitations of existing social skills programs
  3. Effective methods of social skills instruction
  4. Overview of PEERS® curriculum and research findings
