Abstract
The purpose of this paper was to provide a review of the literature on the effect of Social Stories intervention on improving behavior, and communication skills for students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Nine scholarly articles focused on the impact of using social stories strategy were reviewed. Five articles addressed the use of Social Stories exclusively. However, four studies were focusing on the effects of using technology to present Social Stories strategy. All the studies presented in this paper pointed to the effectiveness of the social story strategy in improving the targeted behaviors and some specific skills school students with ASD. Despite the findings of those studies, further research might be needed to determine the effects of using Social Stories. For example, improving skills for high school students who have ASD or implementation more Videos that present Social Stories for Children who have autism with high severity scores. In addition, capability to generalize the acquired skills by the impact of Social Stories strategy may need further examinations.
