Social stories are stories written with the specific purpose of teaching a child or children specific behaviour patterns. Using photographs and descriptive words, these stories take children through real-life situations and attempt to guide their behaviour.
Social stories have often been used to help children with autism or other disabilities to learn coping and social skills, as well as to work through behaviour management strategies. But social stories can have benefits for all young children. They can help children understand expected behaviours, work through interpersonal issues, practice conflict resolution skills and help them understand new perspectives.
These social stories have been specifically written for children attending appointments with Building Blocks Therapy to assist with the new experience of seeing an Occupational Therapist.
