MANAGING FRUSTRATION, ANXIETY AND TEACHING SOCIAL SKILLS
with Keynote Speaker Jed Baker, Ph.D., Director of the Social Skills Training Project 
 Individuals on the autism spectrum and those with behavioral challenges often present with difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially. This workshop describes how to handle meltdowns and design effective behavior plans to prevent these moments and reduce frustration and anxiety. The second part of the presentation 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 though lecture, interactive exercises, and video clips.
