The social and communication challenges facing children and young adults on the autism spectrum become more complex during the transition from child to teen to young adult. This workshop session is to enable speech language pathologists, as well as others assisting youth on the spectrum, to develop a better understanding of these challenges and to build a stronger repertoire of professional responses. First, after reviewing some of the difficult aspects of the transition years, the presenter will show ways to adapt younger-child social skills teaching strategies for older youth. Next, he will introduce several free resources developed for teens and young adults. This session will also address cultural and linguistic aspects of learning differences, provide ideas for adaptations to accommodate specific disabilities as well as meet student needs in inclusive settings. This session will satisfy the DEI requirements for the maintenance of ASHA certification. Presenter: Joel Shaul, LCSW.
