Dear Friends of Autism Today,

Special 1 Day Social Skills Training Workshop in Edmonton, Alberta

	 It's my pleasure to personally invite you to join us for a
special "Social Skills Training Workshop" in Edmonton, Alberta with Dr.

and we're thrilled he accepted our invitation to present in Edmonton
this September 2009. The event is taking place in Edmonton, Alberta on
one very special day, September 24th at The Oasis Conference Center.

proferssionals, teachers and parents worldwide such as The Social Skills
Picture Book, Social Skills Training for Children and Adolescents with
Asperger Syndrome and Social-Communications Problems, Social Skills

Strategies for Managing and Preventing Out-Of-Control Behavior,

for Those with Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, Social Skills Training
and Frustration Management. As you can see he has a lot of expertise and
to top it all off, he is a dynamic speaker and presenter as well!

This dynamic and comprehensive presentation is extremely valuable to all
family members and professionals working with individuals with autism
spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, learning disabilities,
mood and anxiety disorders, and other issues that impact
social-emotional functioning.

This conference is about understanding challenging behaviours in social
communication disorders with an overview of behavioural management
techniques. Specific, user-friendly strategies and techniques for
providing relevant social skills instruction to children and teens with
ASD will be shared at this workshop. Enjoyable socialization methods are
emphasized so individuals may experience success and desire to build
skills. Social deficits affect life at home, school and eventually in
the workplace.Conference participants will learn both highly beneficial
strategies that can be used across a variety of settings and routines;
and practical and effective solutions to assist 'typical' peers, family
members and professionals to become more understanding, accepting and
engaging of those with social difficulties.

We look forward to seeing you in Edmonton at The Oasis!

Best to all of you,

Karen Simmons
