The Importance of Treating Adaptive Behavior for School-Age Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Adaptive behavior deficits (i.e., impairments in practical skills required for daily independence) are a common thread across neurodevelopmental disorders. Specific disorders (e.g., ASD, Intellectual Disability, genetic disorders, etc.) have distinct deficits in the application of skills to daily contexts and routines that are critical for self-sufficiency into adulthood. This webinar will discuss strategies to enhance adaptive behavior in school-aged children across areas of communication, socialization, daily living, and motor skills so as to optimize functional independence.
