Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
Special Learning Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the special needs community, announced today its newest line of educational products for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. The worldwide supplier of comprehensive solutions for the special needs community is unveiling twelve new social story teaching kits, designed to teach social skills to individuals with special needs. Each comprehensive kit contains a social story, social rule cards, full instructional guide and other teaching tools that provide individuals with a platform of learning opportunity to promote social growth and independence.
“Special Learning is committed to developing comprehensive teaching products to build foundational skills in children with special needs,” said Karen Chung, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Special Learning. “Our unique social story teaching kits provide parents, providers and educators with a complete set of tools that can be used together to foster social growth and independence.”
Social stories are short illustrated books that help teach individuals, affected by ASD and other developmental disabilities, the specific social “rules” or “norms” that are generally accepted in society. Titles cover skills from basic social greetings to self-help skills and school readiness skills. Each simplified story helps individuals with ASD and other developmental disabilities understand how to respond to life events and learn to communicate effectively.
In addition, Special Learning has developed complementary teaching tools that will reinforce skills taught within each story. A complete instructional guide, written by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) provides the basis for using Special Learning social stories and these additional teaching tools in the most effective manner possible to achieve success for the individual.
Each social story teaching kit includes:
    Colorful story book
    Coloring book

Parent Waitlist Program

Journey to Independence

Community-based program designed to support families on waitlist

Being an RBT for me was extremely fun because where were you going to find a place where you can be completely silly without having to worry what people thought about you? This was the only job that made me feel like I could make a dramatic difference while being myself.

I also liked to be surrounded by people that had the same goals of wanting to help kids and the teamwork made the job much easier and more enjoyable.

Change and progress was the ultimate goal for our kiddos. The early intervention program was seriously only a miracle because I saw changes in the kiddos that from day one, you wouldn’t even recognize who they were.

Changes from being able to utter 3-4 words where they can only make a syllable from when they started, the behavior decreases in which kiddo that used to engage in 30-40 0 self-harm to only half, learning how to wait during games, table work where they use to swipe and drop to the floor if they had to.

My favorite was when the parents would tell us what amazing progress they were making at home. I used to tear up and felt for these parents so much because it was already difficult for them and now, they can trust and rely on ABA and the therapists knowing their goal was ours.
