DescriptionSocial skills, like learning how to play with others and taking turns, begin to develop at a young age. Coaching and interaction from caring adults are important ways that children of all abilities, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other identified special needs, learn these skills. 
Presented by Teri McGill, Metro Region ASD Network Coordinator, this session for child care providers of children age 2-5 will cover:
   > Understanding the value of teaching social skills
   > An Overview of Preschool Life Skills (from FtF Behavioral)
   > Key social skills that impact the development of friendships/peer mediated social skills
   > How to embed social skills throughout the daily routine
   > How adults can prompt and facilitate an increase of social interactions throughout the day
