Long Description


For many of us, completing our daily self-care routines requires little to no thought.  We do them every day, day after day, month after month with relatively the same level of accuracy.  For many individuals with autism, such daily routines require careful development, practice, refinement, and monitoring.  The rate of progress towards self-sufficiency varies greatly from individual to individual. However, the goal remains the same: to be as independent as possible!   The ability to take care of oneself can greatly impact and improve the quality of life for that individual as well as their caregivers. This presentation will present research-based strategies that can lead to independence during self-care routines across the age span, from toddlers, to teenagers and into adulthood.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to identify skill deficits in learners with autism in regards to self-care routines.

    2. Participants will be able to identify skills to teach in order to increase independence during self-care routines.

    3. Participants will be able to identify and describe techniques to use in order to teach learners with autism to be independent in the completion of self-care routines.
