Webinar: How to Build Social Skills in Children with ASD
Date: Friday, August 25th, 2017 from 12pm – 1pm
Join Dr. Kathleen Quill, author of the best-seller DO-WATCH-LISTEN-SAY: Social and Communication Intervention for Children with Autism, as she discusses how to build social skills in children with ASD in various environments. Children and adolescents with ASD often learn social and communication skills in one setting and have difficulty using these skills in other settings. Parents often express frustration that there is a mismatch between what their children can do in school and what they can do at home. The purpose of this webinar is twofold: (1) to highlight the importance of assessing and programming for generalization of social and communication skills, and (2) to provide a summary of how various evidence-based teaching methods can be used to teach new skills and foster generalization.
The Autism Ontario - Peterborough Chapter is in need of volunteers in order to continue offering support and social activities to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families in Peterborough, Northumberland, Newcastle, Haliburton and City of Kawartha Lakes.

Autism: See the Potential
This video, which features the incredible Michael McCreary, is a wonderful introduction to autism spectrum disorder. The video was created to support customer service professionals when they provide services or support to people with ASD; however the positive response from the general public has been overwhelming. This video is so accessible and entertaining, it offers something for everyone.
