Getting Ready for School – Social Story

A social story is an aid to help children with social or sensory needs which prepares them for what to expect as well as how they might feel and what to do in a new or unfamiliar event/situation. Social stories are used to help explain social situations to children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and those with learning and intellectual disorders learn socially appropriate behaviour and responses through story based or social narratives.

Visual cues make the information easier for kids to grasp who aren’t able to conceptualize an image when someone verbally explains what to do or what to expect. There are a wide variety of applications for Social stories, Understanding others, Going to School, supermarket, dentist, playground etc…

Includes an easy to digest full-colour social story, with easy to read bold text encouraging literacy and word recognition. This story offers clear concise visual cues for the child to follow and prepare for the school day ahead.
