Social Stories Workshop with Carol Gray

 

Carol Gray is a Consultant to Children, Adolescents, and Adults with Autism, providing support via workshops and presentations, information, referral, resources, and direct services for individuals with autism, their families, and professionals who work on their behalf. Carol is best known for the development of Social Stories, a well-respected evidence-based practice used worldwide with people with autism of all ages. She is an internationally sought-after keynote and seminar speaker, and has completed over 1,100 presentations.

Carol has received many awards for her work, including:

  • Social Thinking’s Lifetime Achievement Award (San Francisco, 2015) 
  • Learning Spring School’s Spectrum Award for her global efforts to improve the lives of people with autism (New York City, 2012)
  • The Autism Society of America Education Book of the Year :The New Social Story Book: Revised and Expanded 10th Anniversary Edition (2009)
  • The Barbara Lipinski Award (Lansing, Michigan,2005) for her international contribution to the education and welfare of people with autism.

This workshop is for any parent, professional, family member, or friend who is working on behalf of one or more infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, or adults with autism. Participants who complete the workshop will receive a Social Stories 10.2 Certificate.

Description Social Stories™* (Social Articles for adults) have helped individuals with autism of all ages understand and respond effectively to daily interactions and events. The earliest roots of Social Stories extend to efforts to help secondary students with autism succeed in vocational experiences in the community; giving Social Stories a sound philosophy and timeless practical value.

Today, Social Stories are an evidence-based practice used with individuals with social communication disorders worldwide. Despite the popularity of Social Stories, parents and professionals often miss opportunities to write ‘that one Story that makes all the difference’ or systematically employ them throughout an individual’s lifespan.

Using lecture, discussion, and activities, this presentation demonstrates the value of Social Stories throughout the lifespan as participants learn to develop Social Stories for those in their care. We will discuss the state of the art (and science) with examples of Social Stories that teach previously unaddressed concepts (categorization, organization, patience, resilience, and perseverance, as a few examples), all the while building self-esteem and supporting generalization.

Participants will gain an updated understanding of what
a Social Story is (and what it is not).

They will also leave equipped with new Social Story topics and strategies to make Social Stories work harder and longer for each person with autism from first steps through adulthood.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define the term Social Story  
  • Describe the Social Story philosophy and rationale
  • List the Social Stories 10.2** Criteria
  • Explain the difference between a Social Story and a story
  • List 5 common Social Story misconceptions
  • Summarize five case examples of Social Stories that teach life skills
  • Explain how Social Stories improve parent and professional responses to – and interactions with – individuals with autism
  • Describe an interesting new response to use when a person with autism says, “I don’t know”
  • Explore, write, and illustrate a genuine Social Story.
