A Video Social Story: Personal Space

Video social stories are a great resource but a bit time-consuming to create. Perhaps I will focus on this in a future post! Thanks to Lori Franzella, a friend and colleague of mine, for pointing this one out to me. The author, Maria Scaffadi, does a great job of illustrating the concepts. If you were to set about making a video social story, I think this author has the right idea about the visuals. Despite the abundance of downloadable images available online, it is likely that you would spend hours and hours and still not find what you need for a movie of this kind. Might as well just draw and scan 'em!

Please leave a comment if you feel that you would like to see how to create a movie like this!


  1. I enjoyed the video, and would like to know how to create one like it. I have been collaborating with the school social instructor, and classroom teacher to present social skills lessons in the classroom. We have used My School Day available through Super Duper. Although this resource is excellent, our district provides a very limited budget to purchase other video CDs like it.

  2. Thank you for your comment- I will keep this in mind in planning future posts- stay tuned, I will do a post on creating visual social stories with iMovie...

  3. WOW!! I would love to know how to do this.
