Carol Gray – Speaker Bio

Carol Gray is best known for the development of Social Stories, a well-respected evidence-based practice used worldwide with people with autism of all ages.  Carol was the first teacher for students with autism at Jenison Public Schools in Jenison, Michigan from 1977-2004.  In 1989, Carol began writing stories for her students to share information with them that they seemed to be missing, information that so many of us take for granted.  Many of the stories resulted in immediate and marked improvement in her students’ responses to daily events and interactions.

Carol is an internationally sought-after keynote and seminar speaker, and has completed over 1,000 presentations. She has completed ground-breaking work on some of the toughest topics in autism by reviewing the research, outlining new theories, and developing practical instructional strategies, most notably Gray’s Guide to Bullying (2004) and Gray’s Guide to Loss, Learning, and Students with ASD (2003).

Carol is a well sought after international speaker and author of articles, stories, and books written to help professionals, parents and individuals with autism. She has been financially compensated by Autism TN for her presentation. She has no non-financial disclosures.
