Do you often wonder if there are secrets to teaching social skills to young children who struggle with communication disorders? It’s true that it can be difficult to teach nuance and flexibility to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, because they are sometimes confused by the way social situations present. Because the skills children need to manage social situations are multi-faceted, and the ways social situations present are always different it’s important to find ways to help children understand and practice social skills, How do we prepare young learners with autism for the diversity of situations they are likely to encounter? Using books and stories can engage children and help them prepare for unexpected social encounters.

In this webinar by authors Mary Jane Weiss and Cheri Meiners will highlight key practices in their books to review the essential social skills for young children with autism, and highlight the outcomes that are most socially significant. The webinar will focus on teaching the communication, interaction, and self-regulation skills that lead to friendship and participation in social settings. Weiss and Meiners will review empirically validated procedures, and discuss how they can be combined to effect change in young children with autism. The presenters will target common, yet difficult to teach, skills and share the secrets of using books and stories with young children to improve their communication skills
