In this week’s Direct Line, the TDSB Speech Language Pathology department released a useful 2-page guide to social communication skills…lack of social communications skills often are an issue with autism students. From their description: “This year we have provided some strategies for use with students in the junior grades and beyond, who may be experiencing issues in the area of social communication. Please find attached some general strategies and suggestions in looking at verbal and nonverbal skills, and strategies to use in these areas. There is also some information on how to recognize students who may be experiencing difficulty in the area of social communication.”
