Adaptive behavior deficits (i.e., impairments in practical skills required for daily independence) are a common thread across neurodevelopmental disorders.

Description

Specific disorders (e.g., ASD, Intellectual Disability, genetic disorders, etc.) have distinct deficits in the application of skills to daily contexts and routines that are critical for self-sufficiency into adulthood. This webinar will discuss strategies to enhance adaptive behavior in school-aged children across areas of communication, socialization, daily living, and motor skills so as to optimize functional independence.
