Autosm Society of Maine logo: Improving lives of all affected by autismPresenter: Jed Baker, Ph.D.

Individuals with social-behavioral challenges often present with difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially. Changes to routine imposed by Covid often present particular problems for such individuals. This session is the second of a two-part series. The first session, offered April 15th, described how to handle restricted activities, remote learning, and altered school routines and also covers how to deal with meltdowns and design effective behavior plans to prevent frustration and manage anxiety.

This 2nd session details strategies to motivate individuals to learn, ways to teach social skills, how to generalize skills into the natural setting and increase acceptance and tolerance from peers. Information will be imparted through lecture, interactive exercises, and video clips. Be sure to register for both sessions using the registration links below!

This “Coffee with Cathy” workshop is offered by the Autism Society of Maine (ASM) and will be facilitated by Cathy Dionne, Director of ASM.
