Living Social: How to Use Social Narratives as a Behavior Intervention
Jones, Julie P.; Love, Sarah
Journal on School Educational Technology, v8 n3 p9-14 Dec 2012-Feb 2013
Peer-related social competencies can have a major impact on classroom success. While some students can learn these social competencies through observation and imitation of others, other students require intensive intervention in social skills to be able to interact appropriately with others. This article presents social narratives as a behavioral intervention option for educators. Detailed steps describe 5 stages of the intervention process: (i) identifying target behavior, (ii) establishing baseline, (iii) writing the story, (iv) implementing the intervention, and (v) evaluating effectiveness. Ideas for using multimedia resources in social narratives are provided.
