The effects of Movie Time Social Learning on emotion recognition, perspective talking and empathy in children with autism

This study utilized Movie Time Social Learning intervention tools to target skills in these areas with three children with autism. The three participants were two males and one female, ages 8, 9 and 9 respectively, from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. All were verbal and had a diagnosis of autism. All three participants demonstrated considerable growth over baseline in the areas of emotion recognition and beginning perspective taking over the course of the twelve week study (mean increases of 73%, 35% and 31% respectively in emotion recognition and 68%, 35% and 22% in beginning perspective taking skills). All participants demonstrated some degree of generalization of skills outside of the clinic setting.
