Presentation: Bolstering Social Skills for ADHD & Asperger’s Students

Presentation: Bolstering Social Skills for ADHD & Asperger’s Students

In October 2016 Dr. Hill enjoyed again presenting at the combined Idaho School Counselors- School Psychologist Annual Conference, this time on improving social skills for children with ADHD and high functioning autistic spectrum diagnoses (Asperger’s).  After examining how core symptoms of both issues can lead to social difficulty, participants learned how friendship coaching, group therapy, art therapy, parent education, exercise and varied teaching styles can help these students engage and thrive.  Thank you to long-time school counselor and now private practitioner Janet Cardoza, LCPC for joining me to address how group therapy at school and an adapted version of Reality/Choice Therapy for children can help them respectfully reflect on and change their social interaction style.
