Model Me Friendship™
The Model Me Friendship™ video presents social skills needed to develop and maintain friendship. It features teen-aged children demonstrating appropriate social skills at school, playing on sports teams, eating at a restaurant, and in other settings. Each scene lasts between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, depending on the chapter. At the end of each chapter is a storyboard summarizing the rules taught.
The video is hosted by the children in the video, who narrate each scene. The visual is combined with narration and graphics that help explain the particular rule. Each social skill is demonstrated in more than one situation and across environments. This is useful to children with Autism because it helps with generalization of the skill taught.
Graphics and music are used to make the video appealing to children with Autism.
