Steps to Creating Digital Social Stories in Power Point: 1) First determine the target behavior that the story will focus on. For instance, will this be a story about using the bathroom, going to the grocery store, visiting grandma and grandpa etc. 2) Open up Power Point. Your first slide will be your title slide naming the target behavior. Select a slide layout with text, or start with a blank slide and insert a text box. You might also want to insert a suitable picture as well. You can arrange the text or picture as you would like. You can also change the background as you would like by selecting background styles or any of the designs shown above. For the social stories I would suggest a more neutral background. When formatting is finished, move to the next slide.
3) The next several slides will show the story script. It is important to write the story from the perspective of the child. Keep the wording on each slide simple and relatively short, no more than two sentences.4) Within the slides with the text, you will also want to add images. It is best to use pictures of real people or objects in the child’s life. If those are not available, do a google images search to look for appropriate pictures to match the text. (For privacy reasons, I chose to use clipart.)
5) In Power Point, one can also add audio to the slides.You can view your slideshow by selecting the From Beginning button. You can adjust the timing of yourslideshow by selecting Set Up Slideshow.
This instructional tutorial exhibits the segmenting principle in two ways. First, the idea behind digitalsocial stories is to present the steps of a chosen behavior to a specific child in segments, or broken downin a way that the child will have time to process and understand each step. Also, the tutorial is brokendown into separate steps so that someone wanting to know how to make a digital social story usingPower Point would know what to do first, second, third and so on. In both cases, a more complex idea isbroken down into segments.
