NO MORE MELTDOWNS!  Effective Interventions for Autism & Other Social-Behavioral Differences by Jed Baker Ph.D.

The second part of the presentation details strategies to motivate students 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.
