PROGRAM DETAILS

Asperger syndrome is estimated to occur more frequently than autism, with some agencies estimating that it may occur in 1 out of every 125 births. With no known cause, it is unlikely that we will see fewer cases in the future. Asperger syndrome impacts social communication and interaction skills, greatly affecting performance in school and other group settings. Children with Asperger syndrome have underlying language and communication deficits that can impact their performance in the classroom and other environments. Group treatment has been shown to be an effective setting for the social communication difficulties experienced by children and adolescents with Asperger syndrome. Professionals who are not aware of how to use group treatment effectively may be delaying their patient's progress and denying themselves a very useful therapeutic technique.


This one-day seminar will give professionals the tools they need to implement group treatment with their own Asperger clients. Following six years of clinical research, Dr. Adams created a structure which maximizes therapeutic outcomes. This structure allows both the clinician and the child to get the most of out of the intervention process. Participants will learn how to use group therapy to teach social skills such as eye contact, pragmatics and deterring repetitive behaviors. Screening and diagnostic tools for Asperger syndrome will be examined, as well as tips to write an effective treatment plan. Activities to use during group sessions will be outlined for children from ages three to 18 years and methods for encouraging parents to continue group work at home will be discussed. Attendees will leave with a practical and effective tool to put in their therapeutic bag and use with this challenging syndrome.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"Dr. Adams´ presentations teach practical skills that can be directly applied to therapy. They are informative, interesting and humorous. Many people find children with Autism and Asperger syndrome challenging. Some do not have a starting point or a plan. Dr. Adams gives them the foundation for that plan. She is an excellent presenter!" - Alison Watters, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist, Franklin, MA

"Dr. Adams is an outstanding speaker with a wealth of knowledge that pertains not only to speech-language pathologists but also to OTs, PTs, teachers, counselors, case managers, parents, etc. Her workshops are fun and exciting and provide all attendees with tons of strategies and information to use in a variety of settings. We have received at least three phone calls a week asking us to invite Dr. Adams back for another workshop!" - Kelly N. Barker, MS, CCC-SLP, Speech-Language Pathologist, Marion, VA
