This week we bring you the maaaaaagic of stories as we discuss the use of social stories in skill instruction. Will these popular and easy-to-create documents prove successful in training children to engage in more prosocial skills? Or will social stories turn out too good to be true. All this plus Rob talks Muppet eye contact, Jackie engages in literal potty talk, and Diana sums it all up with a Little Critter metaphor.
Don't forget the "Leave a Review on iTunes" contest. Just by leaving us a review, you're entered into the random drawing where the prize is a free CE! Well, the fee is waived...you still have to listen to the show and such. I consider that a double-prize! You've got until next week's preview episode (April 13th). Good luck!
