According to the authors, visually based social scripts may be more effective and less invasive than verbal cues for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
How To Write and Implement Social Scripts, presents four types of visual social script strategies that can be used by professionals and parents in school, home, or community settings, including written scripts, video modeling, social script narratives, and visual representations of rules.
The authors offer specific steps for implementing each type of social script, and case studies are included. How To Write and Implement Social Scripts, concisely explains the benefits of social scripts for persons with ASD, and it will help parents and professionals identify and properly utilize the appropriate visual strategy for a specific child and situation.
