Socialeyes facilitator training
This two-day course will help you to learn how to facilitate Socialeyes and give people with autism the tools they need to participate more fully in the world. Socialeyes is an innovative approach to learning social skills and developing social understanding for people on the autism spectrum, and is primarily suitable for people with Asperger syndrome. This intensive training covers using role play to help people practise and explore social scenarios, and thereby learn independently. The Socialeyes learning resource has been developed with people with autism and Asperger syndrome, alongside leading professionals in the field. All the resources have been extensively piloted and re-piloted with ongoing development and research since 2005. Socialeyes does not ask people on the autism spectrum to change 'inappropriate' social behaviour, or to acquire social skills by copying the 'typical' behaviour of others. Instead, it gives people the option of learning social interaction skills or alternative social strategies. Socialeyes focuses on eight social skills that people on the autism spectrum can have difficulty with, including starting a conversation, eye contact and personal space. To book a place on one of our scheduled courses, or to have our trainer come to your organisation, please contact the provider. The price includes the Socialeyes DVD.
