Social Narratives - Social Stories, Power Cards, Scripts, Comic Strip Conversations

Social narratives are interventions that describe social situations in some detail by highlighting relevant cues and offering examples of appropriate responding. They are aimed at helping learners adjust to changes in routine and adapt their behaviors based on the social and physical cues of a situation, or to teach specific social skills or behaviors. Social narratives are individualized according to learner needs and typically are quite short, perhaps including pictures or other visual aides. Sentence types that are often used when constructing social narratives include descriptive, directive, perspective, affirmative, control, and cooperative.

Scripting

A script is an audiotaped or written word, phrase, or sentence that enables young people with autism to start or continue conversation and/or activity. Scripts and script-fading procedures are useful to students who are more and less severely disables, and to readers and nonreaders. The goal is to enable people with autism to initiate conversation and/or activity without being verbally prompted to do so. An important characteristic of scripts are that they are individualized to take into account each young person’s current language skills, his or her special interests, and the favorite topics and special pursuits of family members and peers.

Video Modeling

Video modeling is a mode of teaching that uses video recording and display equipment to provide a visual model of the targeted behavior or skill. Types of video modeling include basic video modeling, video self-modeling, point-of-view video modeling, and video prompting.
  • Basic video modeling involves recording someone besides the learner engaging in the target behavior or skill (i.e., models). The video is then viewed by the learner at a later time.
  • Video self-modeling is used to record the learner displaying the target skill or behavior and is reviewed later.
  • Point-of-view video modeling is when the target behavior or skill is recorded from the perspective of the learner.
  • Video prompting involves breaking the behavior skill into steps and recording each step with incorporated pauses during which the learner may attempt the step before viewing subsequent steps. Video prompting may be done with either the learner or someone else acting as a model. [text from the National Professional Development Center on Autism]
