About this Webinar
An increasing number of neurodiverse individuals are entering adulthood without adequate preparation for successful transitions to employment. Behavior analysts have much to offer these individuals as they prepare for life after high school. Challenges with job-related social skills, such as asking for help and responding to feedback, are likely barriers to positive employment outcomes. We will discuss behavior-analytic tools to help promote success in this area, including a direct assessment of potential social skills targets and an assessment-driven approach for identifying effective ways to teach these skills.
