The video below is a recording of a webinar presented by Katie Frank, PhD, OTR/L, and Abby Rowley, LCSW, on January 10, 2024.
Description: Although people with Down syndrome can be excellent employees, research and experience have demonstrated that inadequate social skills is one of the main reasons that people with Down syndrome lose their jobs. Social skills are not inherent. They are an abstract concept that most individuals with Down syndrome need to be taught and learn. In this presentation, Katie and Abby identify common workplace dilemmas and offer strategies to teach skills to facilitate socially appropriate behavior. They also provide resources developed from social skills groups offered at the Adult Down Syndrome Center.
