At the end of each chapter is a storyboard summarizing the rules taught. Hosted by teenagers from the video who narrate each scene. The visual is combined with narration and graphics that help explain the particular rule. Each conversation skill is demonstrated in more than one situation and across environments. This is useful to children with Autism because it helps with generalization of the skill taught. Graphics and music are used to make the video appealing to those with Autism.
