2nd April 2014: World Autism Awareness Day

Tomorrow, 2nd April 2014 is the World Autism Awareness Day. We celebrate it by sharing an article we published one year ago on elearningindustry.com about Talking Social Stories, a device used to prapare children with autism about what is planned ahead to reduce discomfort, distress and conflicts.

The following SlideTalk video exemplifies Talking Social Stories by explaining what happens during a car drive and why is it important to wear seat belts. Click on the picture to open the video page.

You can create your own Talking Social Story video at slidetalk.net. Try today!
