Social Stories

What are Social Stories?

Social stories are mostly used for autistic people. Social stories are short and simple descriptions that are created with the intention of helping the person to understand a particular activity or situation, along with the how to behave in that situation. Social stories also alleviate anxiety by giving precise information on what the person could observe or experience.

Presenting the Story to the Student

Ensure there are no distractions The stories should be read often. The student should share the story with a range of people.

When to Stop

The student will directly or indirectly let you know when to stop reading a social story. The most obvious signal is when he/she is less confused in the specific social situation and behaves more appropriately. Continue to read the story for a short while after to remind the student.
