Free app for Social Skills: Model Me Going Places 2 - Videos for modeling social skills

New places and new situations can cause anxiety and fear in many children with special needs.  Video modeling is a great technique to help children become more comfortable before venturing out to an unfamiliar place.  Model Me Going Places 2 offers slide shows of children modeling appropriate behavior in 6 common settings: hairdresser, mall, doctor, playground, grocery store, and restaurant.  The developer of this app, Model Me Kids, also offers a complete social skills training series including a DVD and other materials.

Autoplay each slideshow or turn each page on your own.  Each slideshow contains quality photographs with narration in a child's voice and text printed on the bottom of the page.
