About Carol Gray:
Carol Gray is a consultant to children, adolescents, and adults with autism, cognitive disabilities and other learning challenges by providing support via workshops and presentations, information, referral, resources, and direct services for individuals, their families, and professionals who work on their behalf. Carol is best known for the development of Social StoriesTM, a well-respected evidence-based practice used worldwide with people with challenges of all ages. She is an internationally sought-after keynote and seminar speaker, and has completed over 1,100 presentations. She has completed groundbreaking work on some of the toughest topics in autism by reviewing the research, outlining new theories, and developing practical instructional strategies, most notably Gray’s Guide to Bullying (2004) and Gray’s Guide to Loss, Learning, and Students with ASD (2003). In addition, Carol has received many awards for her work, and for her international contribution to the education and welfare of people with autism.
In January of 1991, Carol Gray initiated and developed Social Stories*. Social Stories™ have helped individuals with learning challenges of all ages understand and respond effectively to daily interactions and events. Social Stories are one of the most widely used evidence-based instructional strategies for learners with autism in the world.
Unfortunately, they are also frequently misused and misunderstood. Learning how to develop and implement a Social Story is critical to its effectiveness, safety, and integrity. The goal is to build positive social concepts and skills in an individually tailored, unassuming, and supportive learning context.
