Resources & Links Day!

Some of my dear friends,who are contributors to the blog, have been sharing a lot of great resources and links I thought I would put all of them on one post, and let you check out what you may be interested in. Lots of interesting topics!! Always great to share. Take some time to have a look through and pass along to friends & family who may need some ideas. free online video series, social stories, life skills and more. 


Its that time of year when most kids are headed back to school. Whether this is in a traditional setting or homeschool, it still means kids need help staying organized. Even more than that school means schedules, new routines and stress that can cause quite a bit of anxiety in children
Some great resources on this site, there is a great online video series as well, as topics that cover the age span and transitions, certainly worth looking over. 

The Autism Center at OCALI- in Ohio- serves as a clearinghouse for information on research, resources, and trends to address the autism challenge. The center offers training, technical assistance, and consultation to build professional and program capacity to foster individual learning and growth.
The Lifespan Transitions Center offers resources, training, technical assistance, and consultation to support the successful transition of individuals with autism and multiple disabilities throughout their school careers and into their adult lives. Resources address community living and employment.

This is located in BC: ACT – Autism Community Training is an information and referral service that supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families across British Columbia. We also welcome calls from community professionals. There are free videos on this site as well about autism. Some great resources. 


Free online resource for teaching day to day life skills..
Life is filled with chaos, and we have to learn how to work and solve problems in the midst of it every day. These interactive lessons give you the opportunity to experience these daily challenges without real-world consequences.


Free resources for Social Stories: This site has a great bank of stories to choose from, be sure to have a look. 

Social Narratives are stories developed to provide learners with insight into social situations. The narrative emphasizes the significant social cues of given social situations. The story provides the learner with examples of appropriate social responses. The value of the social narrative is that they allow educators to pre-teach social situations and provide learners with strategies to respond to those situations. The narrative must be individualized to the learner’s needs and interests.
