Using Visual Supports for Autism at Christmas
Christmas with Autism
For many children with autism spectrum
disorder Christmas can be a time of high
stress and confusion.
With changes to routines at home and at school,
many autistic children can suffer sensory overload.
Triggering "meltdowns" and anxiety
As any parent with an autistic child knows, any
change to routines can cause problems
"Intervention Strategies such as Social
Skills Stories for Christmas ARE used
with GREAT effect"
What are Social Skills Stories
My social stories are written to help children with autism spectrum disorder learn social and communication skills. They are short descriptions of a particular situation, event or activity, which include specific information about what to expect in that situation and why.
My social Stories are written in word format, so they can be edited
My social Stories can be personalized and adapted to suit all ages and abilities
I use images / pictures to describe a skill, activity, event or situation that the child with ASD is finding confusing or stressful!
They are written in first person text and will always be from the autistic child's point of view
Social Stories provide the child with ASD an insight into the situation
Why use Social Stories for Autism
|Children with autism spectrum disorder tend to be visual
learners, meaning they think in pictures and will
therefore benefit from information that is presented visually, rather than written or spoken.
Parents, caregivers and teachers of children with ASD agree
