The Search for Independence: Teaching Social and Independent Living Skills to Individuals with High Functioning Autism

October 30, 2015 - Duration 2.75 hrs

Alton Bozeman, PsyD
Clinical Psychologist
The Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD

The lack of social and independent living skills presents a major barrier to effective community life for many people with High Functioning Autism. This session will detail best practice in building these skills, including information on a program run by Dr. Bozeman. Specific topics to be discussed include conflict resolution, self advocacy, sex education, and the use of role play in social skills development. Initial outcome data regarding the effectiveness of the program in the area of adaptive living skills will be shared. A general overview of Autism will also be provided, including recent changes in the diagnostic criteria.
