Social Networks DVD Collection
Helps individuals with complex communication needs and their families determine the most appropriate technologies.

The Social Networks video features five individuals with complex communication needs and their “social network” of family, friends, acquaintances, paid professionals and people in the community (store clerks for example.) The video depicts how the Social Networks Communication Inventory by Sarah Blackstone and Mary Hunt Berg can assist teams in (1) setting goals, (2) measuring outcomes, (3) making transition plans and (4) preparing IEPs, IPPs and so on. Also, the Social Networks video can increase the likelihood that teams collaborate and make good decisions about assistive technology recommendations.

Planning communication strategies includes the varying needs of listeners, recognizing that communicating with family is usually easier and will require less assistance than communicating with casual acquaintances or strangers. Social Networks is grounded in the principles of functional goal-setting and person-centered planning.
