Adolescents with ASD...
are still adolescents!
No More "Wheels On The Bus" !
As they frequently remind us, adolescents with ASD and cognitive impairments are still adolescents! Social skills programs that match their cognitive level are “too babyish” for adolescents. Yet, the current age-appropriate social skills and self-regulation programs require sophisticated language and cognitive skills that these adolescents have not yet mastered.
