PRESENTED BY DR. BRENDA SMITH MYLES, OCALI***This presentation will address the unstated rules of social conduct and their applicability to individuals on the autism spectrum. Known as the "hidden curriculum", these rules of social conduct are comprised of items that are not typically taught to neurotypical children and youth, but are assumed and expected knowledge. Despite not being directly taught, theses unstated rules are extremely important. Violation of hidden curriculum rules can have an adverse affect on school performance, physical well-being and how well a student/child is able to positively relate to the community and home. This session will also highlight methods of teaching unstated rules of social conduct across the age span that are applicable to home, school, and community. ***At the end of the session, attendees will be able to: 1. Define the unstated rules of social conduct, known as the hidden curriculum 2. Explain the hidden curriculum's applicability to school, community, home, and work 3. Identify hidden curriculum areas and items across preschool, middle school, high school, and adulthood
