Social Stories

Social Stories, developed by Carol Gray in 1990, are stories which can be used with individuals with Autism to exchange information that is personalized and illustrated. Social Stories are usually short, simple and have defined criteria to make them “Social Stories”. Anyone can create a Social Story, as long as they include specific elements when creating the Social Story. On a personal level, I found Social Stories quite helpful with my son when trying to describe events, activities, social norms and managing expectations.

Below is a link to free Social Stories from various resources on the internet. They are classified according to categories that children with Autism have difficulty with.
