This study examined the effectiveness of Sensory Stories on "circle time" behaviors in preschool children with autism. This single-system ABA design with a convenience sample of four participants consisted of one week for each A phase and two weeks for the B phase. The intervention phase (B) consisted of reading a Sensory Story from one to three times per day to each child. Three children had a positive change in their behavior after reading a Sensory Story. The fourth child also showed a positive change in his behavior; however, behaviors were already improving during baseline, making interpretation difficult. Further research is suggested to determine the effectiveness of Sensory Stories with other age groups and populations. (Contains 4 figures.)
