Social Communication in the Midst of a Pandemic: The Rules Changed! – Traditional Spotlight Session, Winter 2021


  • Type: Traditional Spotlight Session
  • Duration: 1 hour
  • Attendance: Live, attendance required on date and time listed in the course information section
  • Platform: Zoom. Login credentials emailed before the course begins



Many rules that govern our social interactions have changed as a result of the pandemic. Mask wearing compromises our ability to read facial expressions and social distancing is in stark contrast to common social exchanges used during pre-Covid times. Even entering a virtual meeting room (e.g., Zoom, Google) is different from entering a traditional classroom. This webinar will discuss how explicitly teaching problem-solving, flexible thinking, perspective-taking, and the hidden curriculum can help students with social communication (pragmatic language) deficits navigate this “new normal”.



Any  materials will be shared electronically.
