Session Detail

Teaching Social-Related Skills for Learners with Moderate to Advanced Verbal Behavior

ESC-20 provides training and technical assistance for families and professionals working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in a variety of school settings.

Important Session Information:

Early targeted social skill training includes developing necessary skill sets through some systematic procedures like establishing peer values, peer requests, and reciprocation to peer requests as a means of adapting to the evolving social world. While peer-to-peer relations can be taught effectively, it seems rather difficult to teach other nuanced social skills that rely more on rules-governed behavior to become socially successful.

In this in-person session, we will examine research-based procedures for teaching complex social skills and demonstrate an explicitly structured approach, which leads to the acquisition of social skills that are often difficult to establish. A review of the critical skills needed to apply rule-governed behaviors, the structure of lesson plans that are tied to multiple exemplars of social skill development, and data collection and analysis procedures based on evidence and best practices will also be provided.
