Making Social Skills Fun! – Free webinar

May 31 @ 8:00 am - 8:30 am


Tuesday, May 23, 2023 from 8:00a.m. -8:30a.m.
Making Social Skills Fun! 😊

About the Webinar: This webinar will consist of a presentation by Juli Gunner. Juli will discuss the basics of teaching social skills via behavioral skills training (e.g., “skillstreaming”), an evidence-based strategy for helping individuals learn prosocial ways to have their needs met. Participants will be provided with a brief introduction and examples of how to make social skill instruction enjoyable, relevant, and generalizable. This presentation has a target audience of any professional who interacts with individuals on the autism spectrum.

Learning Objectives:
• Participants will demonstrate understanding of the 4 components of behavioral skills training (instruction, modeling, rehearsal, and feedback), and how these can be adapted to support learners across developmental levels.
• Participants will learn how to identify target skills, execute situationally relevant role plays, and create engaging opportunities for contrived and generalized skill practice.
• Participants will recognize the importance of the relationship between emotional identification/regulation skills and adaptive/prosocial behavior.
