SCA February 2017 Meeting

Autism and Relationships: Strategies for Success Interpersonal Relations†

Jacob Singer, M.A., BCBA

This presentation will examine ways to understand how individuals on the autism spectrum approach relationships, and how this differs from the ways in which neurotypical individuals approach relationships. We will also explore practical strategies to improve the quality and longevity of relationships for people with autism. As the number of persons with autism entering adulthood continues to grow exponentially, the importance of helping establish healthy relationships will only become more vital and important.

Jacob Singer, M.A., BCBA, has been working with individuals on the autism spectrum since 2002, and is currently a Program Supervisor at Seattle Behavior Consulting & Therapy. Jacob received his M.A. from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2008 and has been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2009. Jacob has served as Director of Behavioral Services at Alpha Productions Technologies, an integrated sheltered workshop that employed individuals with a variety of developmental disabilities. Prior to moving to Seattle, Jacob was a Lead Behavior Analyst at the Oklahoma Autism Network and adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, teaching graduate courses in Behavior Analysis. Jacobís work with individuals with autism has ranged from early childhood through transitioning into adulthood and post-education employment. In Oklahoma, Jacob provided services to children and families through the ConnectedKids program (an intensive parent training program), through consultation with Norman Public Schools, and through a collaboration with Department of Rehabilitation Services and Goodwill Industries in Tulsa helping high school students on the autism spectrum find meaningful employment after graduation.
