Cognitive deficits workshop

Submitted By Toni Cardenas

Mission Valley SELPA Community Advisory Committee presents Michelle Garcia Winner's "Thinking About You Thinking About Me."

Persons with social cognitive deficits, which includes those with diagnoses such a Asperger's Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, PDD-NOS, NLD and ADHD often have difficulty efficiently considering and responding to the perspective of those around them.

This workshop will explore how central the skill of "perspective talking" is to all social contact and interpretation, whether non-verbal or verbal communication.

All participants whether parents or professionals leave this workshop day with not only new insights into the treatment for students but also with a new awareness of their own intuitive perspective taking skills.
