Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v49 n9 p3807-3818 Sep 2019
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effectiveness of social stories in teaching abduction-prevention skills to children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Three male participants with ASD, aged 4-12 years, participated in the study, which was conducted using a multiple-probe-across-participants design. Thirty-nine voluntary adults participated in the study as strangers who presented lures to the participants. The findings of the study showed that social stories were effective on promoting acquisition for all students with ASD. All the participants were able to learn the target skill and maintain their learning. Social validity data were also collected from participants and their parents. Social validity findings revealed that the opinions of the participants and their parents were positive overall.
