Sažetak

Social Stories are short stories that have been written and adapted for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Social Stories are used to improve children’s social and/or communication skills by teaching them appropriate behaviors in social situations. Social Stories are a very common intervention option for children with ASD. Their common goal is to reduce disruptive behaviors and teach social skills. Current research has not yet scientifi cally confi rmed the effectiveness of using Social Stories as a means of improving the social skills of children with ASD. The main goal of this study is to test the influence of using Social Stories combined with a video modelling approach as a treatment option for social interaction skills in a boy with high functioning autism. This is the fi rst case study of Social Stories effectiveness in Croatia. The participant was a boy (5,2), diagnosed with high-functioning autism. Social Stories were combined with video modelling to teach social interaction skills. In order to achieve the objective of the study, a survey consisting of quantitative and qualitative work was conducted. The quantitative part of the study presents the results of measurements of the frequency of initiated social interactions of the participant, and measurement of the frequency of social responsiveness to interaction initiated by peers, both in two time points. The qualitative part of the study presented the results of the assessment of interaction quality, and the quality of responsiveness to interaction initiated by peers, also in two time points. The results confirmed the hypothesis of the research; the effectiveness of using Social Stories as a treatment for social interaction skills in participant was confirmed, implying the need for implementation of Social Stories combined with video modelling in the further educational goals of the participant, as well as the need for further research in order to ensure evidence-based practice in the use of Social Stories in a population of children with high-functioning autism.
