Getting Parents on board is an essential part of the process. Permission is the first step. It is so fun to give parents a Video Story of their little “movie star” showing off his skills. This is a great way to show parents the expectations and language you use at school as well as their child’s potential for completing each step independently.
Incorporate your students favorite characters into the Video Stories to be even more motivating. Here are some editable Social Stories with popular characters to give you an idea to get started.
Be sure to provide Positive Reinforcement when you see the behaviors you are showcasing in the Video Stories.
