Social Teaching Strategies for Individuals with Autism from the Anime Community
Presented by James WIlliams
Many individuals with autism (and other social-related disabilities) enjoy Japanese anime (such as “Pokemon”), belong to the anime fan community, and attend anime conventions throughout Wisconsin and elsewhere. To accommodate these individuals, people in the anime fan community have created a series of teaching strategies, activities, games and apps that are utilized to teach appropriate social behavior among its members. In this session, listen to a self-advocate with autism, who volunteers and hosts autism presentations at anime conventions throughout Wisconsin, describe and demonstrate how they can be implemented by educators during social skills instruction for individuals with autism.
