Writing social stories for children with ASD can sometimes be needed to help to teach individuals or groups of children about specific social situations. Children on the Autistic spectrum don’t always understand about other people’s feelings and they may not pick up on social prompts and behaviours. So we have to break these situations down into very small steps and tell it in a story. This can help children to gain a greater understanding of how to behave in situations that may be difficult, or may even trigger melt-downs. As many of these situations are life skills, we need to teach them in the way that children on the spectrum can actually learn them. As all children are different, they may need specific stories to suit their indiviual needs. This activity gives parents, carers and educators the tools to create stories to suit those they are supporting.
