Great but very limited tool.

My Take

It is a useful tool but it is also very limited. There are only 6 scenarios and there is no customization so children can get bored watching the same thing over and over. It is useful in helping to model two situations kids aren't in very often that being the doctor's office and getting a hair cut which are stressful on every young child, special needs children even more so.

How I Use It

I use it in small group instruction with 2 to 3 kids to show them how to behave in certain social situations. It only has 6 videos so it is somewhat limited in its scope. For some of the scenarios it does help to know if a child will be in one soon, such as the doctor or getting a hair cut as these are not everyday activities for the kids. If I know a kid will be getting a hair cut soon I can focus him on that particular video more than the others in an attempt to get him comfortable with that situation.
