Presenter(s): Ann Rose Gray MS, CCC-SLP
Date: Mon 8/19 5:00PM PT / 8:00PM ET
Description: A common condition among professionals working with students with social learning needs is that caseloads are growing. It seems we’re always juggling a diverse level of treatment and educational needs. Being a ‘boots on the ground’ therapist often means we are switching between multiple types of intervention & instruction within our work week. Often the idea of expanding our practice to provide more depth and breadth in our treatment of social communication disorders can seem overwhelming.
Additionally, many of our professional education and training programs did not provide a focus on social cognitive interventions. But don’t fear! Adding a more robust social communication program to your treatment day is possible.
By becoming more aware of a growing bank of resources, analyzing your overall caseload, and using strategies to restructure your social groups you can be more effective in treating the social pragmatic needs of our students.
