So What About Us? Supports for students with social challenges

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation will describe how social supports services, including utilizing the Social Thinking® program by Michelle Garcia Winner, were developed and implemented. The session will primarily focus on High School supports, but even if you work with little ones, this will still be relevant, as you will be inspired to see how students can progress as they grow up. High-schoolers with social challenges, many diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, don’t necessarily “qualify” for traditional academic accommodations as many are quite intelligent. Yet, in looking at the complexity of the social world, especially in what is expected of them post graduation, we recognize that they require direct social instruction to meet their full potential. This session will give a brief overview of the learning needs of socially challenged children and explore successes and challenges in program development over the past several years.  From an initial lunch bunch group of 4 students, to weekly social skill instruction groups, to a specialized program with social support classes that run daily. Come learn how you can implement and offer social supports for your kiddos!
