Description Of Presentation:

This first annual Summer Social Institute will bring together parents and professionals to explore the complexities of social through the lifespan. Participants will hear the story of a successful woman with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and be walked through her journey to finding tools and strategies to help her navigate the social world. During the second part of the morning, Chris and Laura will explore both research-based and clinically sound (and practical) interventions to support social and executive function learning at home, at school, and within the counseling setting. This summer social institute is not to be missed as it will blend real life stories with clinical methodologies to better support the social learners in our life today.
