Children with Social Communication Disorders often fail to understand who is really their friend. Due to their disorder they often don't have real friends. When asked about friends they will say they have plenty and will list off names of other children who may be classmates but not true friends. Sometimes they will mistake the child who bullies them as a friend. This social story seeks to help the child understand that a friend is someone who is nice to them and likes to spend time with them. It also serves to set an example of what behaviors the child with SCD should display with friends. Social stories are often effective ways to help a child with SCD or on the Autism Spectrum understand abstract concepts and make positive behavioral changes.
