Practical Social Skills Workshop for Children and Students with Developmental Disabilities

ID: 3267

This workshop will focus on the practical skills needed to help children and adolescents with developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders. The goal in this workshop is to teach about practical socialization skills in individual and group settings to do such things as: build friendships, transfer acquaintances to friendship relationships, avoiding behaviors that may serve to distance possible relationships as well as appropriate skills necessary for the real world. In additions, we will discuss what works in applications from instruction with social skills and what may not create difficulty from instruction to "real world" application.

Supporting Youth with Disabilities in the Transition to Adult Life

ID: 3027

Adopting the roles of adults, such as worker, post-secondary student, or family member, can be difficult and intimidating for any young person. When the young person has a disability, the challenges are multiplied. In this workshop, the roles of adult life will be explored, and why it may be hard for a young person with a disability to fill those roles. Topics to be discussed include transition planning, roles for various support people, instruction in community living, preparation for higher education, and support to enter the workforce.
