Wednesday, May 25, 2016: Social Referencing and Joint Attention Workshop

TIME: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
LOCATION: ABA Learning Centre, 1110-6900 Graybar Road, Richmond, V6W 0A5
COST: $50.00 per person

Two key, related skills that children normally acquire early in their development are social referencing and joint attention. These skills are thought to be especially important for children to efficiently learn from the people and events in their environment. Children on the autism spectrum usually show significant deficits in these areas, and so intervention to address these skill deficits is very important. This workshop will define and explain what social referencing and joint attention are, elaborate on their importance, and provide guidance, with examples, on how these skills are taught to children with autism using behaviour analytic methods within the context of a verbal behaviour program.
