Informing the Design of an Authoring Tool for Developing Social Stories

Abstract : This paper describes the design of an authoring tool, ISISS (Improving Social Interaction through Social Stories), for supporting practitioners using social stories to enhance social interaction in children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC). The goals of the research are: 1) to determine practitioners’ current procedures when working with social stories; 2) to discover how technology can better support such practitioners in the development and use of social stories that focus on improving children’s social communication skills. An exploratory study was conducted with experienced practitioners, resulting in a number of design principles. Two low-functioning prototypes were developed, and explored in a second study. Further work is discussed.
