Digital Stories Targeting Social Skills for Children with Disabilities: Multidimensional Learning
More, Cori
Intervention in School and Clinic, v43 n3 p168-177 2008
Many children learn easily by watching others, imitating actions, and cuing into subtle social cues. However, some students with disabilities have trouble acquiring these social skills. These children require a more intensive intervention to make gains in the social area. For students who have difficulties initiating and maintaining interactions, teachers can implement more structure in the environment to gain a student's interest and encourage peer interactions. One strategy that meets these two criteria is the use of social stories. This article describes how digital technology can provide a multidimensional forum for the creation and implementation of social stories. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.)
