Participants in this workshop will benefit from experience in the “Introduction to Social Behavior” workshop, though it is not a prerequisite.  The instructors will briefly review some of the content from the introductory social workshop, and will cover methods for establishing and maintaining independent leisure, peer play, and joint attention.  A brief review of relevant literature is provided, but the emphasis is again on practical examples and ideas that participants can use with their learners the next day.

Participants will learn to:

Describe a number of early and advanced social objectives

Identify subtle indicators of learner interest, and shape their learner’s ability to initiate social interactions

Establish and maintain a variety of independent leisure activities

Facilitate peer play
