Tri-State Webinar: It’s All About Independent Functioning! Practical Strategies that Foster Independence for Students with ASD


September 18, 2019 from 3:30 to 4:15 pm

A primary goal when teaching students with ASD is to increase independent functioning and decrease dependence on adults. However, this can be quite challenging in school-based settings where the educational climate often fosters adult support. This webinar will address providing guidance and instruction to educational professionals/adults to maximize independent functioning skills for students with ASD. A unique educational planning guide will be shared, designed to assist teams in identifying contexts and situations that require adult support, necessitating the need for instruction and development of independent skills.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss why increasing independent functioning skills in students with Autism Spectrum Disorder is a critical life skill.
  • Define resources and strategies for providing guidance and instruction to educational professionals/adults to maximize independent functioning skills for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
  • Utilize an independent functioning planning guide to identify student needs and subsequent strategies for teaching independent functioning skills.
