Individuals with ASD often responds to verbal stimuli successfully when they are paired with visual stimuli. Video modeling is one of the effective strategies to teach them new skills. There are many other visual strategies to promote learning and independence such as visual schedule, token board, and augmentative and alternative communication systems. In this presentation, instructors will address effective ways to implement these strategies with examples.
This workshop will focus on identifying the skills under the umbrella of executive functioning, and clarifying the relationship between these factors and student educational and social-emotional skills. A review of the role of neuropsychology in identifying these skills as well as skill based interventions will also be included.
