Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson from UCLA Visits Sudbury


June 21, 2016 - On June 8, 9 and 10, selected teachers and educational assistants from SCDSB attended a PEERS training session held at Laurentian University. The training sessions were lead by Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson, assistant professor from UCLA. Dr. Elizabeth Laugeson is the founder and director of the UCLA Peers Clinic. The PEERS-Program for the Evaluation and Enrichment of Relational Skills is a parent assisted intervention focusing on teens in middle school and high school who are having difficulty making or keeping friends. The training session focused on social skills such as having conversations, entering and exiting conversations, using electronic forms of communication, choosing appropriate friends, handling teasing, bullying and other forms of social rejection experienced by students. Many strategies were discussed and provided to also address social skills for students with developmental and autism spectrum disorders.
