Teaching Functional Life Skills to Children with ASD

June 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Presented by Tiffany Francese-Sears, MA, LMHC & Beth Estes, MA, BCBA

Fostering independence is an essential part of childhood development. These skills will help children with ASD to become more independent with personal care such as toileting, feeding, dressing one’s self, and caring for their environment. Thus, it is important that parents be exposed to the different ways to teach these important life skills.

During this workshop we will explore the importance of life skill training and how to apply this training to a community, school, and home-based practice. During this workshop participants will learn several Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) strategies to teach independent living skills, including chaining, errorless learning, visual schedules, differential reinforcement, and social stories. Participants will be shown videos throughout the presentation to enhance their understanding, as well as small group exercises to feel more comfortable teaching these skills.
