The Mizzou Chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association is proud to host our 29th Update Seminar, and we warmly welcome invited speaker, Jessica Dykstra Steinbrenner, PhD, CCCSLP. Steinbrenner will present “Supporting Social Engagement in Children and Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum.”

Presentation Abstract: Individuals on the autism spectrum have unique challenges related to communication and social engagement. These challenges often impact their ability to participate in school and community environments. There are many evidence-based practices (EBPs) that have been successfully implemented in school and community settings and support growth in communication and social engagement. This presentation will provide an overview of key EBPs, video examples of EBP implementation, and tried and true tips for using and supporting others in using these EBPs in real-world settings.
