Event description

Description

Social Skills and ASD

Communication is defined as the imparting or exchanging of information by speaking, writing, or using some other medium. It is a social act requiring at least one other person, which is an area which many individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) find quite challenging.

Individuals with ASD have varying language skills (i.e. some use full sentences, others use short phrases); however, all individuals present with some deficits in their social communication skills. This impacts on an Individual's ability to participate in meaningful interactions with their family, peers and others.

This workshop will focus specifically on social communication including conversation on what it is and the difficulties it can present for children with ASD on a daily basis across a range of environments such as kinder, school, home and in the community.

The aim of this workshop is to enable participants to better understand the early development of social communication skills and the impacts that deficits in this area can have on a child’s ability to interact effectively with peers, form friendships and participate fully in social contexts. Participants will also be introduced to strategies that will support and promote the development of social communication skills in pre-school and primary school-aged children.
