YouCue Feelings: Using online videos for social learning

YouCue Feelings: Using online videos for social learning is a 90-page guide written by a licensed speech/language pathologist with over 30 years experience. The book offers to help parents and professionals use online videos in teaching social skills to elementary and middle school children with disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, or other social learning delays.

The book is broken out into five chapters and five appendices. The first chapter offers an introduction to using YouTube videos as a means to teach social skills and the importance of social learning. Chapter two discusses the YouCue Feelings (YCF) program itself. The third chapter offers further information about the preselected videos including the URL as well as a brief summary of what is involved in each one. Chapter four has activities that accompany the videos in the previous chapter. Level 1 activities focus on the characters in the video and level 2 activities are meant to help begin discussions of the students' emotional experiences. Chapter five offers tips for further learning including some on selecting or developing your own videos.
