The higher functioning (previously known as Asperger's Disorder) population of Autism Spectrum Disorders has recently received a great deal of attention. DSM-5® no longer diagnoses individuals as Asperger's Disorder or PDD-NOS; they are included in the broader Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) label. This presents significant changes to the way professionals diagnose and treat this population.

A Person-Centered Approach to High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder

The higher functioning (previously known as Asperger's Disorder) population of Autism Spectrum Disorders has recently received a great deal of attention. DSM-5® no longer diagnoses individuals as Asperger's Disorder or PDD-NOS; they are included in the broader Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) label. This presents significant changes to the way professionals diagnose and treat this population.

Mr. Kowalski will teach you how to apply a person-centered approach to treating individuals on the higher end of the Autism Spectrum Disorder. You will encounter the typical deficits seen in the domain of social-interaction and obtain intervention techniques to address tact, proxemics, social rules, egocentricity, naiveté, and jocularity. Obsessive interests, poor play skills, dislike of physical contact, and gullibility that are often associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder will be addressed. Expand your ability to treat social-communication deficits such as abuse of conversational rules, prosody, perseverative questioning, abstract reasoning, pedantic speech, and nonverbal communication skills. Enhance clients' emotional regulation with specific techniques designed to improve stress, anxiety, self-esteem, change, ritualism, and sensory overload, and how to recognize emotional states in themselves and others.

In addition, this recording offers extensive strategies to enhance the academic needs of the ASD client by focusing on seven core academic issues: initiating work assignments, increasing motivation, decreasing distraction, compensating for gross and fine motor deficits, adapting the curriculum, academic modifications, and increasing cognitive processing. End the recording feeling empowered and ready to employ these techniques, resulting in improved outcomes and functional daily living.

  2. Ascertain how mirror neurons impact social awareness, and describe how this impacts the clinician's choice of treatment strategy

  4. Detect fine motor difficulties and how to address them in clients
  5. Recognize when sensory difficulties are present and determine how to address them in clients
  6. Examine gross motor difficulties and how to address them in clients
  7. Ascertain how to address problem academic behaviors with clinical interventions to reduce instances of talking off-task, daydreaming, ignoring new information, reading comprehension, tendency to focus on unimportant information, organization, self-monitoring skills, time management, procrastination, problem-solving, literalism, and perfectionism
