Summary: SLPs who work with middle and high schoolers with social communication challenges have much to consider. How do I make sure my practice is being culturally responsive? How do I assist with online learning formats? How do I make sure I'm implementing warranted, functional goals that respect students’ identities – and that take into account the social, emotional, and physical changes that occur during adolescence? Drawing from research, clinical, and first-person perspectives, this on demand webinar presents considerations, strategies, and sample case studies to help SLPs modernize their approaches for working with students with social communication challenges in middle and high school.

Summary: This Perspectives activity focuses on the assessment and treatment of school age students with social language deficits. The first article defines three different conversational profiles for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)and discusses intervention strategies appropriate for students within each of the profiles. The second article analyzes the benefit of using analog tasks (i.e., tasks that represent real-life social tasks) with toddlers through adolescents to evaluate social communication abilities and guide intervention. The third article aims to provide support for best practices in assessing students with social communication deficits, as determined by results of a survey of speech-language pathologists’ current methods and approaches. The final article examines how effective commercially available standardized tests are for evaluating the social and pragmatic language deficits of students with social pragmatic communication disorder within and separate from ASD.
