Topic: Intervention Across a Lifespan of Different Social-Communication Profiles
Presented by: Chithra Kathiresan, SLT, Connect and Communicate LLP

Frequently we place children who are talking into social skills groups and try to ‘teach’ core skills or curriculum in a finite number of sessions. There are so many social approaches and curriculums out there. How do we decide who to teach what and when? Social evolves across a lifetime, and is context and relationship dependent. How do we ensure that what we teach is functional and meaningful across the lifespan? Does teaching social communication always need to be in a group?

In this talk, we will explore:
•       What does social competency involve
•       Teaching beyond labels and understanding the functioning of the child
•       A continuum of social functioning through DIR® Floortime™ and Social Thinking®
•       A continuum of approaches available to develop social functioning
•       Tailoring the intervention to the individual
•       The pyramid for promoting social-emotional competence
