This social story is a great read
for students who may need some support with biting. A lot of children bite others as a sign of frustration, anxiety, pain etc. - sometimes we may even find no
explanation for why they are biting but hopefully this social story
will help reduce biting behaviours.
It is a general book full of different things your mouth can be used for as well as why we shouldn't bite - how it makes others feel, and if we need to bite what we can do etc.
Many students with autism are visual learners and like to learn through seeing something in action. This book comes complete with matching, simple yet engaging graphics to help describe what is being said on the page.
Comes in col option only - no b/w availability, however you can print in grayscale.
Pages included are;
♦ I can use my mouth to eat food.
♦ I can use my mouth to sing songs.
♦ I can use my mouth to laugh.
♦ I can use my mouth to talk to others.
♦ I can use my mouth to whistle.
♦ I can use my mouth to drink.
♦ I can use my mouth to tell stories.
♦ I can use my mouth to smile.
♦ I can use my mouth to do lots of nice things.
♦ Sometimes I get angry and want to bite!
♦ It’s ok to bite my chew toy.
♦ But it’s not ok to bite my friends.
♦ Biting hurts my friends and it will make them sad.
♦ Sometimes, my teeth hurt and I want to bite.
♦ I can bite my chew toy or ask for help.
♦ If I have bad teeth I can go to the dentist for help.
♦ I will remember to use my mouth to be kind.
I recommend printing out each of the individual pages, laminating them and then binding them into a book so it will be easier for students to read - or be read to, as well as being stronger and longer lasting.
