Research the use of social stories and video modeling for teaching socially appropriate behavior to a child with ASD.
Imagine you are a special education teacher in a resource room at an elementary school.
Select 1 scenario below:
One of your students who is on the spectrum is having difficulty with understanding and responding to body language and facial expressions. Her peers in the room are starting to avoid her due to this behavior.You have a student with an extreme interest in trains. He is constantly sharing his knowledge with you and his peers in the classroom instead of having shared conversations. This impacts his ability to work in groups.You have a student who struggles with changes in routine. For example, when he forgets his library books, he will cry and have difficulty regulating himself. He has difficulty when a substitute teacher is present and needs support with strategies to deal with changes in routine.
Select the strategy of either a social story or the creation of a video modeling clip. (HINT: The audience of the social story is an ASD student.)
Write either a 2-page social story (700 words) to include the following components in your social story:
A title and an introduction that sets the sceneThe story with descriptions, coaching language, and “applause” for the studentPhotographs or realistic drawings that specifically reflect the contentA conclusion that’s positive and supportive
Note: Any photos you use must be open source or attributed per copyright regulations.
Or, create a 2- to 3-minute video modeling clip that targets the specific skills. The clip should include the following components:
Identify the skill to be taught.Model the skill to be taught.Write a summary about how the students will role-play or practice the skill.
Submit your assignment in one of the following formats: Word, PowerPoint presentation, PDF, or video clip that can be uploaded.
