The ABCs of Teaching Humor & Theory of Mind to Your Students with ASD: Developmental & Practical Guidelines (Webinar 3 of 3 in Series)

The ABCs of Teaching Humor & Theory of Mind to Your Students with ASD: Developmental & Practical Guidelines (Webinar 3 of 3 in Series)

Research shows that children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have difficulty developing and understanding humor, an important social communication skill needed for development of self regulation, resiliency, language, and literacy. Humor is often the neglected and/or the "missing puzzle piece" in a social skills lesson plan/curriculum for children with Autism. Why? Because their performance can be concrete, situation specific, inconsistent, and contingent on comprehension of the rules and roles in the surrounding environment. This causes the IEP team to prioritize goals, not realizing how crucial it is to address humor as part of the overall treatment plan! This webinar will introduce attendees to a more developmental, practical, sequential, and behavioral approach to teaching humor, using toys and tech (i.e. iOS Apps) in treatment. Practical suggestions will be provided, including a list of resources and a comprehensive handout.
