Abstract
Many students with emotional and behavioral disabilities do not receive the social skills training required for success in inclusive school settings or life after graduation. Teachers often cite lack of training and motivation as factors explaining this. This article describes a teaching sequence that enables students to create and utilize their own multimedia social skills training modules. This intervention shows promise for social skills training in increasing student motivation, engagement, and generalization. Step-by-step instructions for teacher and student training and facilitation are included.
