The Filter Approach (Fort Walton Beach)
Location: Fort Walton Beach
Presenter(s): Stephanie Sanders
The number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is growing at an alarming rate and parents report social skill deficits as their major concern. SLPs are faced with providing social communication language therapy to this growing population. The F.I.L.T.E.R. curriculum provides the literal vs. figurative filter concept and presents an acronym for connecting the concept to social skills that will help students before, during, and after conversation. The training will include the research basis and support for use of the FILTER approach, strategies to implement the FILTER approach with students/clients in therapy, inclusive options for using the FILTER approach in general education classrooms, and techniques for ensuring generalization of the approach in home-based and other settings.
Time: 8:00am-3:30pm Central Time. (Sign-in begins at 7:45am)
