Social Stories by Carol Gray (DVD, Book & CD)

Social Stories by Carol Gray (DVD, Book & CD)

The concept of Social Stories for children with autism has gained popularity in recent years. Carol Gray initiated and developed the use of Social Stories in 1991. She has 20 years of experience educating students with autistic spectrum disorders.
• Social Stories are used primarily to teach children with autism how to respond appropriately to a given situation. These stories are short, positive narratives that describe specific situations such as when to say thank you, how to give a hug, sharing toys, washing hands etc. They are also used to describe classroom routines, or variations in that routine (e.g. fire drill).
• Social Stories can be written by therapists, teachers, parents - anyone working or living with a child with an autistic spectrum disorder. These stories often include information that helps autistic children understand other people's feelings and thoughts. They require parents and professionals to consider a situation from the perspective of the child with autism, and to identify and share information that may be missing through use of the story.
• "Writing Social Stories" is an actual Carol Gray workshop. In this three-hour presentation she explains the genesis for her concept and leads the audience through exercises during which they can write their own Social Stories. If you plan a group viewing, we recommend ordering additional copies of the workbook so that each participant can have their own copy and have the best learning experience.
• "The New Social Story Book" includes over 150 actual stories in different areas such as social skills, personal care, cooking and mealtime routines, helping around the house and more. Includes a detailed chapter on how to write Social Stories. Comes with a CD containing each Social Story in ready-to-print PDFs and easy-to-edit Word files!
