  • The Hidden Curriculum: Practical Solutions for Understanding Rules in Social Situations

    Saturday, Nov. 16, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Durham Airport at RTP

    Internationally acclaimed author and presenter Brenda Smith Myles, PhD, returns to North Carolina for the Autism Society of North Carolina’s fourth annual fall conference. The conference will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Durham Airport at Research Triangle Park.

    The topic of the conference is The Hidden Curriculum: Practical Solutions for Understanding Rules in Social Situations. The Hidden Curriculum refers to the set of rules and guidelines that children and adults may not be taught but they are assumed to know, understand, and follow. The curriculum includes things that can affect social interactions, school, health and well-being, as well as unspoken rules, slang terminology, metaphors, reading body language, context clues, and more. This information may be intuitive for neurotypical individuals, but it is not for individuals with autism or other special needs.

    Join us to learn how to define the hidden curriculum; how it applies to home, school, and the community; and how to teach the hidden curriculum across all stages of life.
