Social skills training videos

Hi folks.

I thought I would share with you some great videos on social skills ideas for persons on the Autism Spectrum.
They a produced with a great bunch of professionals and persons on the Spectrum.
I feel these are the sort of videos which can relate ideas in a way which many young persons, who may be struggling a little with social interactions, could be very comfortable with and find enjoyable. Personally, I have observed increased social skills training successes when the autistic person is actually 'relating' with another person on the Spectrum who can share their ideas and similar peer related feelings and skills with one another or in a group.
The video below uses a robot (in a space theme) to complement several interactions.
It is terrific.

The website is called 9th Planet 

I feel it is one of the best sources of social skills assistance I have seen for a while.

Here's an introductory video for you all to have a look at - enjoy ;)
