Dr. Anna Vagin – Play2Practice: Gaming for Social Learning

Anna is a speech and language pathologist (SLP) who is known for her work using media and games to improve students’ social skills.

She is going to share with you how she uses games as part of her work with children and adolescents, and explain how you can continue this type of work with your student at home. 

Something that impressed me about Anna is her way of connecting with her audience by talking about very complex matters in a simple, matter-of-fact way that encourages actions and solutions.

Lesson completed

Dr. Vagin’s interactive presentation will explore how games can be engaging tools to help children with ADHD build their comfort level with uncomfortable feelings, become more resilient, gain perspective-taking ability, understand that feelings can change very quickly, and recognize that it’s okay to make mistakes.

We will discuss strategies that can increase appropriate risk taking and help manage anxiety via role-playing, table-top games and video games.

You will leave with lists of recommended games as well as visual supports to use for in-the- moment support of your student.

Anna Vagin is a licensed speech and language pathologist for over 25 years. She specializes in individual and group therapy focused on building the language and social learning abilities of children.

She provides parent education seminars and consults to schools for program development. Her first book, Movie Time Social Learning, outlines how to use popular movies to teaching the intricacies of social interaction and relationships for children with social learning challenges.

She now works on movie shorts to provide therapeutic material for discussion of feelings as well as internal and interpersonal processes underlying relationships.
