I enjoyed this class because I don't often receive enough training in this area. I also enjoyed the speaker's accent...It was fun to listen to. I thought she was very smart and the class provoked deep thinking regarding my students' needs.
A superb presentation loaded with helpful information! The presenter was very organized and provided practical information regarding the population, social skills, therapy approaches and specific materials she has found useful.
Lots of good information about prevelence of social skills problems. I hadn't realize that conduct disorder was considered a psychiatric disorder, but then the emphsis is on treatment not diagnosis. Lots of great therapy tools suggested. I like the way she described how to evaluate the person before you actually start treatment.
The course content and presentation were informative, concise, and well organized.
