Before I started working with Dr. Susan Kabot, I had never heard of pragmatics. And I certainly didn’t realize what a big impact they could have on the behavior of an individual with autism. So, when I started to think about episodes on how social skills impacts behavior, Sue was my first call. Because trust me, she can explain the intricacies of pragmatics in language than I can.
We had such a great discussion, that I decided to cut the interview into two. In this episode we talk about what pragmatics are and how they impact student with high functioning autism. And I have a free download in this post related to one of the characteristics she notes. In the next episode, we will talk about how to teach pragmatics and things educators should think about when addressing behavior.
Highlights of How Pragmatics Impacts Behavior
Sue answers the biggest question of What Are Pragmatics? Because I had never heard of them before I met her.
We talk about how pragmatics and social language impact individuals with autism with average or above cognitive skills (spoiler alert–some of it relates to our expectations).
She talks about how educators’ expectations students impacts the behaviors and has a great story about this happening.
And we talk about the role of pragmatics as a setting event in challenging behavior, among other impacts.
