A Story Intervention for Children with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities
Social Narratives are a simple, evidence-based intervention for helping children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental delays to improve their social behaviour. Packed with sample stories, this easy-to-use, practical guide shows how to create and use personalised Social Narratives with children aged 4+.
Drawing on autism theory and extensive, up-to-date research, the author provides clear guidelines for writing and using Social Narratives. The book covers details such as using literal language, incorporating the interests of the child, including comprehension questions and the importance of including pictures. Readers will benefit from the extensive advice on presentation and implementation, as well as from explanations of the rationale behind each step. Ready-to-use sample stories are also included, and are useful examples of how Social Narratives can be used in practice.
Perfect for improving social behaviour in children with ASD, this book will be a valuable resource for teachers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists and educational psychologists, as well as parents.
