Creating Social Stories

March 1st, 2022

Bev Sher, speech and language pathologist, webinar recording 1 March 2022.

Social stories are important tools for supporting communication and daily living. They can help a person with Fragile X syndrome to reduce their anxiety levels, and help them with practising appropriate social interactions, making transitions, learning new skills, and understanding behaviours.
This session covered * What makes a successful social story * How to craft your own * Apps & other useful tools.

Speech and language pathologist Bev Sher joined our FX webinar series in March 2022 to share her experience in creating and using social stories. Bev has years of experience in supporting individuals with Fragile X syndrome, through the Fragile X Alliance Clinic in Melbourne and her own private practice.

Survey for parents / carers of adults with Fragile X syndrome

FRAGILE X | ADULTS & AGEING. We're undertaking the first Australian study on the support needs, health & wellbeing of ADULTS with Fragile X syndrome. Our goal is to enhance quality of life for adults with Fragile X syndrome as they age. We invite parents or carers to participate in our SURVEY. The survey has questions about: 1. GENERAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING of the adult with Fragile X syndrome. 2. EFFECTIVENESS OF EXISTING SUPPORTS for the adult with Fragile X syndrome as they age. 3. FUTURE PLANNING concerns of families & carers who provide support 4. ANY GAPS IN SUPPORTS OR SERVICES which may impede best outcomes in care. From the information contributed through the Survey we will develop training modules for frontline carers and tools for advocacy. The Survey can be completed ONLINE, in PAPER FORM, or by PHONE.
