Study on Autism Spectrum Disorder and Social Stories Purpose and Utility

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can have significant social and communication difficulties. The major goal of this chapter is to give a quick review of studies that have used Social Stories (SS) to help students with ASD develop conversational abilities. This review has three main objectives: (a) to inform about the general purpose and positive results of incorporating story-telling methods into the learning and teaching process, (b) to assess the prospects of creating SS through digital media in relation to arousing children’s interest in the subject matter and reinforcing their creativity in developing a variety of life skills, and (c) to motivate teachers to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their teaching. Any educator, but especially those who work with students with ASD or other developmental disabilities, will benefit from reading this material.
