​​​​​​​​​Social Skills for Autism

​​​​​social-skills-autism-signup.jpgTeaching appropriate social skills is an integral part of effective ​autism intervention. This is difficult because "social skills" are not a straightforward lesson and since a range of communication deficits are present in persons with autism, these concepts may not be enough. Social stories have been proven an effective form of intervention. Pairing lessons with visuals in the stories helps to solidify concepts for children. Stories don't just suggest appropriate behaviors, they also describe different settings and social scenarios so that children know what to ​expect. These stories can be revisited to help the students internalize this knowledge and become more comfortable with new surroundings or situations, which leads to a reduction in negative behaviors.​
