S$^{2}$C$^{2}$: Toward an App to Support Social Story$^\mathrm{TM}$ Comprehension Checking in Children with ASD

Abstract : Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have difficulties with social communication and interaction. Social Stories$^\mathrm{TM}$ are a well-known intervention to help them overcome these difficulties. During these interventions, practitioners must check children’s understanding of various concepts that are taught. However, this activity - comprehension checking - is often skipped as practitioners find it difficult and time consuming. Our project explores how a technology-based tool (the S$^{2}$C$^{2}$ app) can be designed and developed to support Social Story$^\mathrm{TM}$ comprehension checking in children with ASD (aged 7–12) by involving typically developing children (TD) and experts in ASD and HCI. An initial pilot evaluation with sixteen TD children and five experts in ASD and HCI suggested that the S$^{2}$C$^{2}$ app provides appropriate engaging activities for children and facilitates Social Story$^\mathrm{TM}$ comprehension checking. However, caution must be taken in extending the results and more studies involving children with ASD are planned to be conducted in the future.
