Social Stories

What is it - A social story breaks down a task or a social activity into small simple steps.
What is needed - Accompanying pictures that outline the steps.
Who needs it- First developed for use with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders).This approach has also been successful with children, adolescents, and adults with ASD and other social and communication delays and differences as well as individuals developing normally.

I use social stories with children to help them understand socially appropriate manners and concepts in different situations.Here are some examples. (feel free to copy and use these pictures)
