Social scripts are carefully designed conversations that teach students with autism to use a variety of language during social interactions. These scripts provide vocabulary for initiating, maintaining and ending conversations. It guides them to stay on topic, ask and answer questions and listen to peer and/or adult responses. Once scripts are understood, they learn when and where to use them to increase social interactions. Sometimes students can learn them verbally with visual support. Other times, AAC is the most appropriate tool.
