Perspective Taking through Narratives: An Intervention for Students with ASD
Dodd, Janet L.; Ocampo, Alaine; Kennedy, Kelly S.
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v33 n1 p23-33 Nov 2011
This study investigated the use of a narrative-based language intervention program for teaching perspective-taking skills to students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The participants consisted of 18 students between the ages of 9 years 7 months and 12 years 2 months (M = 10:8) who had a diagnosis of an ASD. Students received 500 minutes of either a narrative-based intervention that focused on teaching perspective taking (PTI) or a traditional narrative-based language intervention (NBLI) that focused on story elements and semantics. Intervention was provided in small groups consisting of five students and one speech-language pathologist. The participants who received the PTI demonstrated greater growth in their ability to retell the story from the perspective of different characters compared to those who participated in the NBLI. Clinical implications are included. (Contains 7 tables.)
