Empowering Students with Social Stories
Social Stories™ was developed by Carol Gray, president of the Gray Center for Social Learning and Understanding. A Social Story describes a situation, skill, or concept in terms of relevant social cues, perspectives, and common responses in a specifically defined style and format. Although Social Stories were first developed for use with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, the approach has been successful for people of all ages and with a variety of learning delays and differences.
Assisted by other Sonoma County behavior specialists, SELPA behavior specialist Kathie Merrill will instruct workshop participants in creating Social Stories unique to the students they work with. Participants with leave this workshop with a powerful instructional tool.
