NB: This resource was previously published as Talkabout DVD (ISBN: 9780863885679) and includes the same video scenarios.

This is a valuable resource for anyone using the ‘Talkabout’ series, bringing social skills to life! The video library contains acted scenarios for each skill being taught, modelling both poor and good behaviour and includes videos taken in a number of settings and with a range of different ages. The videos are essential for situations where there is only one group facilitator and therefore difficulty in modelling different skills and behaviours. The resource includes an instruction booklet on how to access the video library and use the video in conjunction with ‘Talkabout’ and is a must-have for anyone using the ‘Talkabout’ books, teaching social skills or working with people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities or social communication disorders.

NB: The Booklet is designed to be used with the Talkabout Online Video Library for which you will need to register with the publisher to access.
