Very few experimental studies have examined the use of Social Stories to modify the social skills of children with autism spectrum disorders. The behaviors targeted for the present study include a problem social skill (i.e., excessive directions) and a prosocial skill (i.e., compliments). The study used both a multiple-baseline-design-across-behaviors and a multiple-baseline-design-across-participants with two children diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified. The main dependent variables were frequencies of directions and compliments. Results demonstrated that Social Stories were effective at modifying these social skills, and child and parent evaluations of the intervention were positive.
