Discrete Trial Therapy is widely used to teach children with autism spectrum disorder. However, is it the best approach for all cases? This workshop focuses on more natural teaching strategies for children with autism spectrum disorder. This conversational, behavioral approach is ideal for children who have well-developed conversational and cognitive skills.
Topics to be discussed include:
• How to help the child accept change
• Techniques to improve problem-solving
• Handling social skills issues
• Methods for stress management
