Social Stories™* are a very popular evidence based instructional strategy used worldwide with people with a diagnosis of autism as well as other social communication disorders. They are a wonderful ‘go to’ intervention for an infinite variety of purposes. Unfortunately, they are frequently misused and misunderstood – resulting in stories… but definitely not Social Stories. Using lecture, discussion, demonstration, and a series of very short, fun, and informative activities, participants will learn how to develop a Social Story (or Social Article for adults) according to the recently updated and revised Social Stories 10.3 Criteria. The time will fly by! Participants will finish the course understanding and knowing how to develop Social Stories, with a certificate to prove it.
At the conclusion of this workshop, each participant will be able to:
This online workshop is complete in four one-and-one-half hour sessions. Since start and closing times for workshops vary, sponsors insert their own times for each session.

Bio of Presenter: Carol Gray
Carol Gray began her career as a teacher for four children with autism at Jenison Public Schools, in Jenison, Michigan. Currently, she works as a consultant to children, adolescents, and adults with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum, 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 1,200 presentations. Carol serves on many advisory boards, including the Advisory Board on Disabilities for Delta Air Lines.
Carol is also the founder of a very effective social philosophy that 1) ‘abandons all assumptions’, 2) regards both the typical and autism perspective as ‘equally valid’, and 3) recognizes the ‘social impairment in autism’ as shared (noting the well-intentioned but nonetheless misguided mistakes of parents and professionals). She has completed ground-breaking work on some of the toughest topics in autism by reviewing the research, outlining new theories, and developing practical instructional strategies, most notably Gray’s Guide to Bullying (2004) and Gray’s Guide to Loss, Learning, and Students with ASD (2003).
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 in education and improving 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), and the Barbara Lipinski Award (Lansing, Michigan, 2005) for her international contribution to the education and welfare of people with autism.
Carol has written several articles and chapters in addition to the resources that are listed below. Many of them are available online as a free download in The Morning News/Jenison Autism Journal and Carol’s Club sections of Carol’s website, CarolGraySocialStories.com.
