video features middle and high school-aged children demonstrating
social skills at school and in the community. Each scene lasts
between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, depending on the chapter.
At the end of each chapter is a storyboard summarizing the
Hosted by teenagers from the video, who narrate each scene.
With narration: In the first half, the visual is combined
with narration and graphics that help explain the particular
Without narration: In the second half, 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 conversation skill is demonstrated in more than one
situation and across environments. This is useful to children
with Autism and Asperger's because it helps with generalization
of the skill taught.
Graphics and music are used to make the video appealing to
children with Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, 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.
Run Time: Approx. 68 min.
