Teachers, educators, parents and even those who are dealing with the public in libraries and museums may want to consider creating social stories for children on the autism spectrum with communication disabilities. The following are three useful websites containing free social stories that can be printed and downloaded.
To develop a social story from scratch, teachers and parents may want to read the article titled, How to Make a Social Story. This article discusses how to develop a social story from scratch, by first identifying the desired skill or skills to be taught, listing consequences of appropriate and inappropriate behaviors, and personalizing the story with pictures of kids and places that the child knows.
Using pictures and symbols will help the child with ASD and other communication disorders learn important life skills. Teachers and paraprofessionals may be interested in finding some free pictures and symbols to incorporate into their social stories. For more information on free clipart, see the article, Free Pictures and Symbols for Social Stories.
