This presentation offered a viable and validated solution to remote assessment of social communication: a video-based technique that elicits responses through a set of video-based role plays of real-life situations as well as a survey that analyzes adverse educational and social impact. This is a strengths-based method that is sensitive to the higher level pragmatic skills, such as understanding of and expression of affective language, perspective taking, social-emotional and interoceptive awareness, self-advocacy, motivation and reflective self-awareness that can provide tailored assistance in fostering a positive autistic identity. This approach has been validated for telepractice.
