Social Skills Instruction for Autism Spectrum Disorder
The Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA), housed at UD’s Center for Disabilities Studies, offers training and technical assistance that benefits individuals with autism, their families, and the professionals who serve them. We are pleased to announce our winter statewide virtual training schedule designed to introduce participants to the core characteristics of autism and practices that provide support in a variety of settings.
Brought to you by the Delaware Network for Excellence in Autism (DNEA), this social skills instruction training discusses how social skills are developed and how that development can look different for students with autism. The training considers ways of assessing social skills, skills to target, and explores evidence-based strategies that can support autistic individuals. Additionally, the training provides an overview of the Kits for Kids Educational Program for peer training, created by the Organization for Autism Research (OAR).
Participants will be emailed log-in information and training details approximately 48 hours before the training date. Please check the email you used to register and/or your JUNK mail if you do not find the confirmation in your inbox. Participants will be emailed a certificate of attendance approximately two weeks post training.
Seating is reserved for Delaware residents and Delaware professionals. Please email Alisha Fletcher at firstname.lastname@example.org for any accommodation requests.
