Students with disabilities, including those with autism spectrum disorders are increasingly being educated in the general education setting. Professionals working with students with autism spectrum disorders may implement a variety of interventions to improve the social interaction and behavior of such students. A current method used with students with autism spectrum disorders is the social story intervention. This project seeks to expand the research base related to social story use through examining the current literature and surveying special education teachers, speech/language therapists, behavior therapists, and teacher aides working with special education students. Though the research is limited, the results of social story use seem promising and may provide potential benefits to students with autism spectrum disorders and other special needs.
