Autism & Social Communication Skills Programs Robert Rivest has been highly successful working with students with autism and social communication disorders. Robert helps students with autism and social communication disorders learn to read and respond to non-verbal language. He has created a series of exercises and games that help students read facial expression and body language while developing a repertoire of responses. Robert’s autism and social communication disorder program offers students the opportunity to observe, discuss, model and practice interpreting and responding to non-verbal communication in a safe, comfortable environment. Robert is playful, creative, adaptive, mindful and is wonderful at reading the energy and needs of the students.
“Many thanks! The kids had a wonderful time yesterday. Many of the teachers commented on your expertise with reading kids, and 'flexing' your program to make it work for everyone. Thank you again. See you soon!” -Beth Gibson Framingham Public Schools- Special Education Department
“Robert was a great fit for our program, which services students with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. His workshops and performance reinforced the facial expressions, body language and perspective-taking skills that our students were being taught. Robert worked closely with us to learn what he could do to tailor his show and workshops to needs and age-level / interests of our students.” - Caitlin Nusser Mannino, M.S., CCC-SLP & Denise Sher Roditi M.S. CCC-SLP Elementary Summer Social Skills Program
