Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by deficits in understanding others' minds, an aspect of which involves recognizing emotional signals. In this study, we used Stop-Motion Video with Advertising (SMV) to focus on the broad range of nonverbal social cues to promote perception judgments of others and situational awareness in adolescents with ASD. We reviewed judgment data from typically developing (TD) children (n = 38) and those with ASD (n = 33), all between the ages of 10 and 14. We examined the differences between their judgments data after they viewed two types of advertising videos: Video-Based Advertising (VBA) & SMV. The results indicated that SMV materials offered structured and specific social signals of close-up images for adolescents with ASD, helping raise their levels of perceptions judgment and situation comprehension.
