Creating a Social Connection: Learning to Write Social Stories to Help all Children Be Successful in a Variety of Settings
This interactive training will provide participants with a complete introduction to the concept of Carol Gray’s Social Stories. Social stories were originally created for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in order to increase their ability to take in “social information,” also known as pragmatics or pragmatic language. Social stories are also beneficial to all children because of their sentence structure, content and use of pictures and so participants will learn how social stories can be beneficial to all children in their care. Participants will first learn about, and then practice writing, the different types of sentences that are often included in social stories and then write a complete social story about an activity or skill that will impact a child or children in their care.
