The ongoing social skills group for students with autism (ages 9-12) will be taught using visual examples and by interacting with students. I will use slides with words and pictures and video clips. Students will be encouraged to practice the skills taught that day by interacting with other students in the class. Topics will be different each week. Weekly Topics include: Meeting 1: Facial expressions. Meeting 2: Tone of voice. Meeting 3: Saying "no" politely. Meeting 4: Saying what you...
Students will learn everyday social skills and will be able to practice those social skills during class.
I am a parent of a child who was diagnosed with high functioning autism when she was 8 years old. She is now 25 years old. I have a passion for helping children in the autistic spectrum reach individual goals. I have a Master's Degree in elementary education. I led a support group for parents of children in the autistic spectrum for almost three years. I have also had experience teaching social skills classes to children in the autistic spectrum. I have attended an Autism/Asperger Conference and a Sensory Processing Disorder and Young Children workshop. As a parent of a child in the autistic spectrum, I have learned a lot about helping my child learn socialization skills on a daily basis, and I would be honored to work with your child to help them learn to navigate the social world we in which we live.
There is no official homework. Students will be asked to try to practice the social skills they are learning.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
