Filmmaking: A Video-Based Intervention for Developing Social Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
LePage, Pamela; Courey, Susan
Interdisciplinary Journal of Teaching and Learning, v1 n2 p88-103 Fall 2011
Video production can be easily used as a way to develop social skills in older children with higher-level autism and Asperger syndrome. The program described in this article is an inclusive program that employs a reverse inclusion strategy to teach social skills to children and adolescents with autism utilizing filmmaking. We discuss some of the social challenges faced by these children, the importance of addressing social skills, the program that we implement for developing social skills in children on the spectrum, and our experiences and observations with this program. We provide strategies that should be considered during filmmaking to help children on the spectrum develop social skills in integrated settings, share our perspectives of filmmaking, and our observations of the impact of filmmaking groups on learning.
