It can also be helpful for children to develop coping mechanisms.

Pros There are many benefits to developing and implementing social stories. One reason that social skills can be an effective strategy is that those on spectrum often lack the theory of mind Baron-Cohen et al.
As a result, many with autism have difficulty navigating social situations and picking up on social cues. Social stories may provide context and produce a clearer understanding of the social world. One positive aspect of implementing social stories is that is can be tailored to the individual child Lorimer et al, For example, if the child has a social skill deficit such as solely talking about their own preferences or interests, a social story can be created to foster social reciprocity.
The video can then display behavior such as characters asking questions about others. Another benefit of using social skills is that they are easy to implement and provide a visual breakdown of the desired behavior.
Since many individuals with autism are visual learners, providing a visual representation of a social situation can be beneficial. This study used 3 preschool children in an inclusive setting. The study found that pro social behavior increased compared to baseline and showed improvements in appropriate play as well as initiating conversations.
Another study compared the use of social stories and comic strip conversation CSC for decreasing a target behavior Quirmbach et al. The target behavior in the study included decreasing interpersonal conflict which was written in for both the social story and the CSC.
The research concluded that the use of social stories was an effective tool for decreasing interpersonal conflict. Cons Although social stories are included as an empirically based intervention, more research is needed to enhance understanding of the full effects of social stories.
In addition, other research suggests that although many of the social stories studied showed a positive effect, they did not follow Grays outline for implementing social stories.
In addition, there is little evidence that supports Grays implementation strategy.
Finally, Gray outline for implanting social stories does not take into account motivation. Cognition, 21 1 Effects of social stories on prosocial behavior of preschool children with autism spectrum disorders.
