Presented in collaboration with Surrey Schools and the
Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders (POPARD)
Founder and Innovator, Social Stories Satellite Schools and Services, and Carol’s Club, Michigan, USA
Join ACT for this terrific two day workshop and discover why Carol Gray, the innovator of Social Stories, has earned the respect of the international autism community. An insightful presenter, Carol Gray inspires us to rethink how to support those with social-communication challenges.
Research has demonstrated that a Social Stories approach, when used properly, can play an essential role in enhancing communication and bringing down anxiety among individuals with ASD. They are very useful in reducing challenging behaviors which are often provoked by confusion and fear of the unknown on the part of the individual with ASD.
This Social Stories 10.2 workshop, led by Carol Gray, will devote two full days to the art and science of Social Stories, with the focus on practicing skills and learning the many new strategies developed in recent years.
Join us at the Surrey School District Education Centre or via live web-streaming, from anywhere in B.C. or Alberta, to polish your Social Stories skills, learn new techniques, or discover the versatility of this instructional strategy for the first time. No previous experience of Social Stories is required.
