Using Visual Supports and Resources to teach social and communication skills
Kids with autism CAN become OVERWHELMED and STRESSED by everyday social skills, noises, sensations, behaviors, events and activities. And CAN struggle to cope!
Due to the Triad of Autistic Impairments the majority of kids with autism will struggle with
skills and behaviors that typically developing children will master naturally.
Typically children on the autism spectrum NEED to be taught social and communication skills directly. This is achieved using supports for autism.
The Triad of Autistic Impairments (social skills deficits) ARE common to ALL children on the autism spectrum scale.
The Triad of Autistic Impairments(social skills deficits)
WILL affect three main areas of development:
Communication skills - verbal and non-verbal
Using visual supports and resources as Intervention Strategies is a PROVEN method of teaching those with autism.
Intervention Strategies like:
Social Skills Stories
Visual Social Story Cards
Visual flash cards
Visual timetables and so on ARE easy to implement and NEED NO formal training to use.
Using Visual supports for Autism as Intervention Strategies
Social Skills Stories ARE popular Intervention Strategies USED to teach social skills to children with autism.Social skills stories answer the "wh" questions - who, where, why, when and what as well as "HOW" and give an insight into the thoughts, feelings and emotions of others which is an area of marked weakness in individuals on the spectrum.
A social story WILL ACT AS A ROLE MODEL or VISUAL PLAN helping the child on the spectrum re-fresh, understand and learn a new skill or behaviour.
A social skills story is generally written in first person text, following a set formula and will be in a manner the child on the spectrum can understand.
Social skills stories ARE easy to implement, convenient, are easy to edit, can be personalized, and can be used in the home, while out and about, at school, college and work.
This collection of 50 social skills stories for teaching social skills to children with autism cover a wide range of difficulties such as: social awareness, communication difficulties, self-help skills, imagination skills and behaviours that your child may find stressful or confusing. A social skills story breaks down the skill into key points "the social cues" allowing the child with autism a chance to practise the skill, relieving stress and anxieties.
