Because SpecialNeeds.com is based in California, some people think we tend to ignore the O.C. (That’s Other Coast, of course, not Orange County.) But that’s not so. Here’s an event we think is of interest, and it’s certainly not in California.
Jed Baker is one of the foremost presenters on autism (etc.) and social skills today. He’ll actually be speaking at several locations around the country between now and October. At West Nyack, however, he does not share the program with anyone else. This will be “A Day with Jed Baker,” and we think you’ll enjoy it. Dr. Jed Baker is worth hearing any time.
Jed Baker, Ph.D., is the director of the Social Skills Training Project, a private organization serving individuals with autism and social communication problems. He also directs social skills training for Millburn Public Schools in New Jersey. He is on the professional advisory board of Autism Today, ASPEN, ANSWER, YAI, the Kelberman Center and several other autism organizations. He writes, lectures, and provides training internationally on the topic of social skills training and managing challenging behaviors. He is an award-winning author of five books, including Social Skills Training for Children and Adolescents with Aspergers Syndrome and Social Communication Problems; Preparing for Life: The Complete Handbook for the Transition to Adulthood for Those with Autism and Aspergers Syndrome; The Social Skills Picture Book; The Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond; and No More Meltdowns: Positive Strategies for Managing and Preventing Out-of-Control Behavior. His work has also been featured on ABC World News, Nightline, the CBS Early Show, and the Discovery Health Channel.
His presentation is called, All Kids Can Succeed! Effective Invertentions for Behavioral and Social Challenges.
