Putting EBPs into Practice - Social Skills Training

Category: Autism (Regional, On-site, and Online Training)
Posted on 10/26/2020

The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice released the 2020 Evidence-Based Practices Report identifying 28 evidence-based practices (EBPs) for autism. Social Skills Training (SST) is one of the 28 EBPs identified. This training will discuss social skills training, when it is used and why it is effective. Examples of how social skills training is being used will be shared along with demonstrations of the different steps and how it supports student success in various domains. Participants will independently view an online module then participate in a scheduled 3 hour session connecting information from the module to our practices in the classroom, in the community or in the home. This time will include opportunities to ask questions, share insights, practice, access additional resources & examples of SST in practice.

By the end of the training participants will be able to identify the components of SST, name various activities where SST can be used, determine for at least one individual with autism what skill to teach and how SST will be used to teach it.
