Time for a Playdate™

The Time for a Playdate video presents social skills in the context of several playdates. It features elementary school-aged children demonstrating appropriate social skills on a playdate. 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 young children in the video, who narrate each scene.

With narration: In the first half of the video, the visual is combined with narration and graphics that help explain the particular rule.

Without narration: In the second half of the video, the same video is repeated without narration and graphics. This allows a parent, teacher, or therapist to customize the lesson the individual child and/or to test what was learned in the first viewing of the video.

Each social skill is demonstrated in more than one situation and across environments. This is useful to children with Asperger's Syndrome and Autism because it helps with generalization of the skill taught.

Graphics and music are used to make the video appealing to children with Asperger's Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Nonverbal Learning Disorders. A high production value helps keep the child's interest so that he or she will want to watch many times.
