Using Social Stories and Video Modeling in Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapists are using social stories and video modeling to successfully teach a variety of skills to children with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, and social and emotional disorders. There is a growing base of evidence supporting the use of stories and videos in occupational therapy for the acquisition of social skills, fine and gross motor skills, emotional regulation, daily routines, and adaptive behaviors. In this 1-hour webinar, Gwen presents the history and evidence behind social stories and video modeling. Next, you learn how to use these tools to facilitate the acquisition of social skills, increase independence in the activities of daily living, enhance sensory modulation, and improve handwriting. Specific tools such as Carol Gray’s Social Stories™, apps, and links to free resources equip participants to easily begin making stories right away.
