My project will be a social story for a student who has difficulty approaching peers for social engagement. The opening to my project will be a narrated description of my student (a first grader with a diagnosis of PDD) along with his IEP goal. A description of his classroom will also be included, as well as directions on interacting with the activity.
My student will see a video or a picture with narration of a social scenario, i.e.. kids eating lunch in a lunchroom, kids at recess, waiting in line for a turn. My student will then choose the appropriate response to the scenario from video examples, pictures with or without narration, or just narration from a character within the project. Multiple means will be used to engage the student and to keep the project interesting.
My student will see a scenario and be given a choice. For example, John and Jack are playing at indoor recess. You would like to play with them. Should you A) Go over and take their toys or B) Go ask John and Jack if you can play with them.
When my student chooses the correct answer, a video will play that will allow him to see the appropriate interaction. If he chooses the wrong answer, nothing will happen. This is an error free activity!
School can be difficult to navigate for any child, but particularly for those with a social disability. An on-screen reward will be played in the form of music, verbal praise, or a visual display when the student chooses the correct response.
This concludes my story board. I hope you like it and that it works to describe my intended activity!
