It’s no secret that children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome have difficulty with social skills and interactions with other children and adults. This makes it especially hard to teach them the necessary skills.
Having poor social skills can be tough for children in school. Other kids don’t want to be around them because they are akward or can’t follow a conversation without interrupting. Or maybe they just make fun of them.
This isn’t always true at every age but somewhere around the middle school years it can be the most difficult. This is also the age where kids begin to recognize their own problems and realize they need to do something about it.
Recent research has suggested that “video modeling” can be an effective way to help them develop the social skills necessary to succeed. Watching videos that show proper social behavior has shown promise that may help these children get on the right track.
Fortunately, Model Me Kids has created an entire series of Autism and Asperger Social Skills Videos. These videos are available for children 2 to 17 years of age and are highly targeted for specific social situations.
Model Me Kids continually updates and adds new videos to its catalog. With an impressive resource development team of doctors and learning specialists, Model Me Kids self-funds their projects and proceeds are used to fund new projects.
