Social Stories – Information for Parents
Please read this guide before you read the social story to your child. Thank you
What is a social story?
A social story is written to share accurate information with your child.
It helps your child understand a social situation.
It provides positive feedback for your child to help them recognise appropriate skills and behaviour.
They can be used to prepare your child for a new situation and how to respond appropriately
What do I do?
1. Read the attached story with your child at a time when everyone is feeling calm and relaxed
2. Use a clear word e.g. ‘This is a story about touching. Let’s read it together now.’
3. Try to find a time to read it together every day to support him to understand what is expected.
4. Avoid reading this story after a behaviour has occurred, it should be read together beforehand, so that your child can understand what to do.
