Adolescents on the autism spectrum require specialized instruction to develop friendships and social networks. In this webinar, participants will learn to teach adolescents with ASD how to:
      * Develop and maintain friendships,
      * Handle peer conflict and rejection,
      * Teach ecologically valid social skills used by socially successful teens,
      * Help teens find sources of friendship with assistance from social coaches,

Participants will also learn ways to train social coaches to support individuals with ASD using strategies that ultimately foster dependence in social relationships.

Learner Objectives:
     • Identify social skills deficits among adolescents.
     • Recognize the importance of improving friendships.
     • Explore limitations of existing social skills interventions and research findings related to social skills instruction.
     • Learn how to implement PEERS curriculum for teens.
