“Teaching Coping Skills to Learners with Limited Receptive Language”

Presented by Hannah Sauber, M.S., BCBA

Many people can learn by simply being instructed - When you feel overwhelmed, practice mindfulness; deep breathing can disrupt your stress response; routines help make self-care a habit. But what about people who don’t learn this way? People with limited or different communication can still learn coping strategies and self-care behaviors; they just need a different approach to teaching.
