Accredited Social Stories Training

Why do children and young people with autism struggle to negotiate the social world and what can we do to support them?

Session one: A look into the issues around context blindness faced by many of our young people and the social context teaching which is needed to help this. After lunch a training package designed to enable staff and parents to use Comic Strip Conversations effectively to support social understanding.

Session two: The full Social Stories™ accredited training package, delivered on behalf of Carol Gray by members of the Freemantles Social Stories Satellite School. Social Stories are a social learning tool that supports the safe and meaningful exchange of information between   parents, professionals, and people with autism of all ages.

The cost for professionals is £150. The cost for parents is £30.
