Real Answers for Asperger’s Syndrome (autism spectrum disorder)

Real Answers for Asperger’s Syndrome (autism spectrum disorder)

Previously known as “high functioning autism” and “Asperger’s syndrome,” the condition currently called “autism spectrum disorder” creates great confusion and frustration among parents and family members. It also represents numerous challenges for teachers and potential employers of adults with this condition. Symptoms can start early in childhood and persist throughout the person’s lifetime
This webinar is especially helpful for parents. It shows you how to recognize the seven key defining behavior clusters along with a wealth of practical measures to assist the affected individual and the family. It details the impaired social judgment, profound compulsiveness and concrete logic that are cornerstone features of the symptom picture of these children, teens and adults. It also helps you understand and cope with other defining characteristics, such as the correlation with IQ, mechanical inclinations, irascibility, and impairment of muscle control.
Dr. Taylor shows you how to adjust your communication style for more efficient navigating of day-to-day interactions. He helps you address issues crucial to improving life for these individuals, including their social adjustment, arranging their immediate surroundings to minimize symptoms, and training them in “reading” body language of others. He also demonstrates how to upgrade conflict management skills, divert the need to tattle, and get them to improve their interpersonal attractiveness. This webinar features many additional crucial ways to improve the overall behavior and thought processes of any children, teens and adults with this condition.
After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Reduce tattling and social conflict
  • Improve awareness of other’s feelings
  • Improve adjustment at school or work settings
  • Compensate for concrete logic and compulsiveness
  • Take advantage of strengths such as mechanical skills
  • Recognize (and teach others) the seven key defining clusters
  • …and much, much more
