Social Stories

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often find it difficult to interpret and understand social cues, social rules and social context.

Social Stories can help children who have difficulties developing social skills to learn how to respond appropriately in social situations.

Social Stories are brief descriptive stories that provide information about a social situation. This information will help children to understand the expectations of a situation.

Social Stories are a tool that can be used by parents and early childhood teachers to help prepare a child for a new situation, to address challenging behaviour or to teach a new skill.
