Promoting Social Engagement and Play in Children with Autism

Professional Continuing Education Seminar Series

Join us for this workshop that is part of our intermediate to advanced-level workshop series for human services and behavioral healthcare professionals working in clinical, educational, medical, and rehabilitation settings.

Instructor:  Alice Shillingsburg, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Description: Impairment in social interaction is identified as the hallmark characteristic of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which often results in significant detrimental effects on effective social communication and the development of meaningful relationships. It is critical that behavioral interventions include programming to promote social initiations, engagement, and play to enhance social communication throughout development. Given the range of functioning level seen in individuals with ASD, programming to address these areas can be particularly challenging for practitioners. This presentation will provide an overview of the social deficits associated with ASD and present a variety of evidence-based procedures to promote social engagement and play with caregivers and peers.  

Continuing Education Credits: 1 Continuing Education Credits for BCBA and APA
