Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Special Learning Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the special needs community, announced today its newest product for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities. The world-wide supplier of comprehensive solutions for the special needs community is debuting SL Social Skills Learning Solutions™, a kit designed to teach social skills to individuals with special needs. The first in a series of solutions-based products, the comprehensive kit containing social stories, social rule cards, mobile app, full instructional guide, quiz booklet and other teaching tools provides individuals with a platform of learning opportunities that promote social growth and independence.
“At Special Learning, we take a comprehensive approach to teaching any skill,” said Karen Chung, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Special Learning. “Through the use of various mobile, web-based and print formats, Special Learning has developed a unique and multi-functional learning solution using social stories to help foster growth and independence in individuals with special needs.”
Social stories are short illustrated books that help teach individuals affected by ASD and other developmental disabilities specific social "rules" or "norms" that are generally accepted in society. Based upon the concept created by Carol Grey, these simplified stories help individuals with ASD and other developmental disabilities understand how to respond to situations and life events by learning to communicate effectively.
Special Learning has taken the concept of social stories and made them available to users in a variety of user-friendly ways to adapt to different learning styles. The Social Skills Learning Solutions™ kit includes a complete instructional booklet to teach parents and educators how to properly use social stories, along with these additional related teaching tools:
Each social skills product provides vivid illustrations and simplified text to help teach individuals how to understand and respond effectively in given social situations. All of the titles provided fit together to create a sound teaching curriculum of fundamental lessons on basic social skills, school readiness, independent living skills, and more.
With the release of this new product in September, Special Learning, Inc. continues its mission to make a positive impact in the lives of those individuals affected by ASD, Down syndrome, and other developmental disabilities around the globe.
