ESC Speech Pathology Webinar Series
Helping Teens and Young Adults on the Autism Spectrum with Social and Communication Skills: Insights & Resources




This interactive webinar series has proven to be an excellent source of continuing education for many speech pathologists and other school staff since 2012. In this series, we are once again offering high-quality learning opportunities, so speech pathologists and speech pathology assistants can improve upon their existing skill set. Developed through the thoughtful collaboration of ALL twenty education service centers, we have secured respected presenters to deliver timely and high-level learning topics, all conveniently delivered to your computer/device.  The more informed you are, the better prepared you are to serve your students.  Join us throughout the school year for any one, a few, or all of our SLP webinars.


Important Session Information:


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 a number of 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 maintenance of ASHA certification.

2.5 TSHA CE hours are pending approval for this session.  

Registered participants will receive handouts and a link specific to the upcoming webinar with instructions to connect from the home or work computer/device prior to the event.
