A sociamation, set in the playground, starts with reassurance that feeling angry with someone is O.K.. It then suggests that taking a deep breath to calm yourself and then talking about your reasons for feeling cross is a possible route to resolution. However, swearing is deemed unacceptable.
So ... What are Sociamations?
Sociamations are colourful short animations, which depict young people in everyday situations which they might find challenging. They are brief and to-the-point and include voice-overs offering clear guidance about particular scenarios.
All sociamations follow current research guidance, and are story boarded by specialist educationalists, who work with young people with social interaction difficulties.
They show young people alone or in groups as the depicted activities require, and often include safety guidance.
Sociamations are designed to improve learning and social experiences for many people, including those who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, social communication difficulties, learning difficulties, emotional difficulties and low confidence and self-esteem.
Repetition is key to success.
