Children with autism often need support in reaching advanced language levels and expectations found in the classroom, community, and in social relationships. This need is a requirement to reaching increased levels of independence. This seminar focuses on going beyond early language programming and moving toward advancing language skills and social connections for learners with autism.
Join autism expert, Landria Seals Green, MA, CCC-SLP, BCBA, and learn evidence-based strategies for accurate assessment tool selection, developing effective learning programs, and improving data collection methods for social skills, social behavior and conversation fluency. Through the use of case studies and hands on activities, you will walk away with the skills necessary to:
- Select assessment tools that accurately evaluate social skills and language deficits
- Advance vocabulary, oral narrative skills and conversation fluency
- Advance language skills of sentence complexity, reasoning and social problem-solving

- Create activities and tools that engage student learning and support self-management and regulation needed for inclusion
When therapy teams move toward specifically teaching, shaping, and supporting the generalization of social behavior, conversation fluency, verbal fluency and reasoning—the learner with autism can reach new heights in the academic setting, in relationships and vocationally!
