Essential Skill-Building for Adolescents and Adults with Autism

 

There are key components, skill-wise, that we work through with our adolescent and adult clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Base Topics for adolescent and adult clients with ASD (PASS Program included):

  • Introductions and Trading Information in Conversations
  • Two-Way Conversations
  • Entering and Exiting a Conversation
  • Electronic Communication
  • Appropriate Use of Humor
  • Social Gatherings
  • Handling Disagreements

Everyone works through these base skill-building sessions. Some of these skills are covered over multiple weeks. There are several other topics that we cover as appropriate for the unique needs of each individual client.

We often have to come back to these same topics with the same clients multiple times due to the challenging nature of ASD as related to social skills and communication.
