SIG 1 Perspectives Vol. 21, No. 1, January 2014
Children and adults with autism present with significant challenges related to social communication.

You will be able to:
- describe issues around narratives for evaluating social-pragmatic skills in high functioning individuals with ASD, including differences in narrative genre, the impact impaired personal narratives have on social relationships, collecting and interpreting personal narrative and embedding narration within the context of language intervention
- identify key issues facing adults with autism and intervention to support these challenges
- describe the use of comic storyboards as a way of improving social communication in children with autism
- discuss the relation between anxiety disorders and pragmatic impairments in ASD, and the evidence for cognitive behavioral therapy for treatment of anxiety disorders in ASD
