Social Stories 10.2

Spring 2018

Come learn about Social Stories 10.2, the latest update to Carol Gray's strategy used worldwide with children, adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum. 

This workshop will define Social Stories, an approach that describes a situation, skill or concept in terms of relevant social cues, perspectives and common responses in a specifically defined style and format. The workshop will cover the goals of Social Stories, their uses at home and in schools, and participants will develop their own stories.
