The Time for School video
presents social skills in the context of school. It features
elementary school-aged children demonstrating appropriate
social skills in the classroom, library, on the playground,
and in the hallway. 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 a young boy, who narrates 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, Autism 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 Autism
and Asperger's Syndrome 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. 61 minutes
