Social stories teaching tools are visual they were first developed by Carol Gray almost twenty years ago as a means of communicating with the autistic children she was working with.

 

Social stories are visual strategies that act like a role model for  autistic children. Using first person language and images the social skills story answers the important “wh” questions who, where, why, when and what as well as giving possible reactions and solutions the autistic child may consider, helping to make them more comfortable with and in the situation they may be struggling with.

The social skills story will show the autistic child how another person may re-act or feel in the situation by describing another’s point of view. It will also explain rules, routines, situations, upcoming events or abstract concepts; and how the child with autism can understand expectations.
