If you are a parent, educator or other professional working with individuals with social cognitive, executive function, communication & emotional regulation difficulties, the Autism Awareness Centre, Inc. conference in Vancouver February 27 and 28 is for you!
Come learn practical skills that can be applied to existing curriculum related to executive functioning and social regulation with AAPC author Elizabeth Sautter, MA, CCC-SLP, as one of the featured presenters.
Elizabeth Sautter will be discussing social regulation in Make Social Learning Stick: Practical Tools to Build Social Regulation, a workshop that overviews the importance and challenges of social regulation and ways to implement curriculum that addresses this area.
Interpersonal situations are often problematic for individuals who struggle with social interaction. This workshop will take a deeper look into this matter and emphasize the significance of navigating emotions and behaviors in order to manage social communication.
By understanding the correlation between an individual’s emotions/behaviors and social interactions you will be able to implement suitable applications that will enhance these social interactions in children. Newly learned strategies will show participants how to identify teachable moments in order to shape a social success. These strategies can easily be applied to support social regulation in various environments, including school, work or in the community.
