Using videos to help kids learn social skills

Recently, I’ve been using videos to help teach during my social groups.  It’s a wonderful way to be able to talk about a lot of different social skills and social thinking.  I always preview what I’m going to show the kids and think about what our focus will be.  I will often pause the video in the middle to have a conversation about a scene we’ve just watched.  It’s always fascinating when I watch the same video with different groups, it often leads to some very different group discussions.  Here are a couple of examples of videos I’ve used with kids.
