Today on Autism Live, Shannon talks about teaching children on the spectrum social skills, tacting, shapes, shopping and more. BCBA Angela Persicke talks about teaching social language. A viewer on the spectrum writes in to say that they have no interest in having friends and wonder how essential is it for someone to have friends. A discussion follows about personal preferences, choices and lack of ability. We all want to make choices based on preference not ability.
