Hello Live: Social Skills After the Age of 18 - A Case-Study of a 32-Year Old Woman with Autism Wanting to Date, with Sharon Soliday

November 13, 2014
Kelly C. Bawden, MS, CCC-SLP

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a young woman high-functioning ASD who is trying to navigate the online dating scene? Are you curious about what foundational social skills younger children with ASD might need as they move into adulthood? Join THF-owner Sharon Soliday as she shares a case-study detailing her private practice work with a remarkable 32-year old woman with autism. Sharon will share some of their more memorable sessions together, a few lessons she herself had to learn along the way, and her take on the skills SLPs can and should target with young adults in this population.

And when you're done earning those free CEUs, take a listen to our Q&A session. Sharon and I had a great chat about why and how these sorts of cases fall into the scope of practice of SLPs, ways we've screwed up our teaching at the High School level, and how truly thankful we both are to not be speed dating right now.
