Susan Berkowitz’s Free Birthday Bash Language Game

Did you know that today is my birthday?  So, I’m giving you a present. 

I have been working with kids with autism for more than 40 years now.  And I have seen our knowledge about autism and best practices for educating kids with autism change a great deal over that time.

One of the things many kids with autism struggle with is social situations.  Not knowing what to do or say.  Being overwhelmed by the noise or a crowd.  Not understanding that the toy (present) you brought has to be given away.

I have a resource called, Teach Me to Communicate at a Birthday Party, which is designed to help kids with autism understand what happens at parties and what to say and do.  

One piece of the resource involves understanding the sequence of what happens at a party.  Here is the free
sequencing resource that provides sequences for what will happen at the party, and what the student should do.
Have fun! It's a birthday, after all.
