Inference Generation Skills: Intervention for Adolescents With ASD
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
In this session, we’ll focus on inference generation as an aspect of pragmatic language and higher-level literacy skills. We’ll discuss how to assess inference skills in both modalities and how to provide evidence-based intervention to help adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) succeed at home, school, and work.
You will be able to:
- identify the unique challenges individuals with ASD face
- describe the process of generating inferences both socially and while reading
- identify the categories of reading inferences most related to social inferences
- identify the aspects of social inference generation that are typically troublesome for individuals with ASD
- demonstrate how to adequately assess the reading and social inference abilities of adolescents with ASD
- discuss evidence-based practices for addressing both social and reading inference generation
