Autism: Managing Frustration, Anxiety and Teaching Social Skills
Friends of Autism Great Falls is pleased to host Jeb Baker, PhD on Saturday, March 24th 9am- 4:00pm at the Hilton Garden Inn. Lunch will be on your own 12- 1pm.
Jed Baker, PhD. comes to Great Falls to share his vast expertise in “Managing Frustration & Anxiety and Teaching Social Skills.” Individuals on the autism spectrum and those with behavioral challenges often have difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially. This autism conference describes how to help individuals and their caregivers handle meltdowns and design effective plans to prevent frustration and anxiety. It will also detail effective social skills training strategies for all individuals and review some common skills needed for young adults, including the realm of sexuality and dating.
Dr. Baker is director of the Social Skills Training Project and has served on advisory boards for Autism Today and several other organizations. He has provided social skills and challenging behavior training internationally and has written over 8 books (No More Meltdowns, The Social Skills Picture Book Series, Social Skills Training, Preparing for Life and No More Victims). His work has also been featured on ABC World News, Nightline, Fox News, the CBS Early Show and the Discovery Health Channel. His knowledge will benefit everyone in attendance and can change the life of someone with autism.
This conference is for parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers, and people with autism. In response to your feedback, we have asked Dr. Baker to address all ages of those with autism. In addition, we will have tables to write on this year.
Local autism service providers will be present to provide information. We will also be selling his books.
