Loved the idea of using children's books to teach social stories!
Helping students to write their own stories, adding images or photos, and then making a copy to use is a great idea also. We use the 5 point scale a lot. Playing board games is a great way to help practice interaction, handling competition, losing, winning etc. The Hidden Curriculum sounds like teachable moments!!!
Great presentation! Lookimg forward to using social stories.
This was great!! Can't wait to check out the resources shared!

I believe everyone should be reminded of how to use the simple yet powerful tool of social stories. Yes, they are for more than people with autism. I continue to use PBIS world, many thanks!
