storyboard summarizing the rules taught.
Hosted by children from the video, who narrate each scene.

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

children with Aspergers Syndrome and Autism.
