Are You In the Zone? Social Communication, Enhancing Social Skills, Executive Functioning, & Academics for Students (Including Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, Anxiety PDD-nos, ADHD, Social Skill Deficits, Behavioral Issues & More!)

Ask any educator, having a student with Social Skills Deficits (High Functioning Autism/Asperger Syndrome/ADHD/Behavioral Issues/etc.) in the classroom can present numerous challenges.  This training will teach participants how to reframe their thinking in addressing students with these social skill deficits.

The first part of this conference will focus on social skills and the importance of social pragmatic communication for the student with autism/Asperger syndrome/ADHD/Behavioral Issues.  Individuals with this diagnosis possess inadequate social skills. Their ability to effectively engage and communicate is hampered by deficits that standardized tools often fail to target and many professionals have struggled to teach. This session will help participants to identify, develop measureable goals, and learn to utilize interventions for those deficits related to social-interaction, social-communication, and social-emotional regulation, thereby allowing for more appropriate service delivery to those affected by High Functioning Autism, Asperger’s PDD-nos, ADHD, Behavioral Issues & more.

The second part of this conference will focus on ASD/ADHD- academics, and executive functioning.  Participants will learn a variety of behavioral supports designed to enhance the student’s ability to initiate work assignments, increase motivation, decrease distraction, compensate for gross and fine motor deficits, adapt the curriculum, modify academics, and increase cognitive processing. By employing these techniques educators will learn how to defuse power struggles in the academic environment and implement procedures that will benefit all.

This is a practical strategies seminar! During this full day training extensive recommendations designed for specialists and classroom teachers, to help students succeed in the academic environment, will be provided. Participants will take home numerous useful tools and creative ideas to use the very next day!

Regular-education teachers (as well as special education teachers and support staff) will find the information presented invaluable. Strategies presented will allow regular education teachers to utilize approaches within their own classroom.
