This curriculum is an intervention program for adolescents and young adults with developmental disabilities, including autism. It focuses on 50 important skills through video modeling, photo-based directions, and role playing. A teacher monitored, self-assessment procedure keeps students engaged in the process.

The Card Set has 50 laminated 4” x 6” folded cards. The card front features a photo with the name of the skill, for example, Getting Ready for School. Inside, each skill has five steps with clear and concise photos. On the back, a “self-talk story” provides a skill attainment strategy. The Student Book consists of larger versions of the cards, with self-monitoring checklists for each of the 50 skills. The Teacher’s Manual includes narratives, objectives, teacher scripts, and role play activities. An assessment with all 50 skills helps you organize instruction. The manual also provides 27 supplemental skills, like Respecting Friends. The Video Modeling DVD demonstrates each social skill step by step with age-appropriate actors. The actors highlight issues relevant to skill performance. The Social Success Software and App combines the Student Book with the videos into an easy-to-navigate, interactive program.

The Curriculum includes a Student Book, a consumable Student Workbook, Card Set, DVD, Teacher’s Manual with a PDF on disc and a Classroom License for printouts, Social Success Software and App.
