Social Stories

Social stories are visual or written explanations in short and simple stories that are used to explain to a child what to expect in the future, to decrease anxiety, teach rules or even demonstrate social cues. For example, if you anticipate your child will encounter a big change soon, a social story might help explain this change, why it is happening and what your child can do to seek help.
