Teaching Social Sexual Safety Skills to Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 -
9:00am to 12:00pm

Children and adults with autism spectrum disorders need knowledge and skills in order to be safe, including social, sexual, safety skills. But what should we teach? And how should we teach? What have we learned from the social or sexual experiences of people with developmental disabilities? Barbara Doyle will answer these questions, bringing her knowledge of how children and adults with autism spectrum disorders think and learn, to help participants acquire strategies for teaching and learning important skills for social and sexual safety across the lifespan. Useful resources and handouts for assessment and goal selection will be provided.
