DOWNLOADED OVER 3000 times from our TpT Store!

“I Can Have School At Home Sometimes!”
Designed to help a student who is struggling with having ‘school-at-home’ now. The student may miss interacting with friends at school, and struggle with some of the aspects of school-at-home.

And

“I Can Use A Screen For School When I Am At Home!”
Designed to help a student who is struggling with coming to a video screen such as a tablet or computer to participate in ‘school-at-home’.

How They Can Be Helpful:

As a large number of schools across our nation transition to a ‘school- at-home’ experience during the COVD-19 pandemic, many of our students, especially those on the autism spectrum or with other special needs, may struggle with the transition. Sometimes it is difficult to explain some of the complicated new ways of experiencing school form home to our students.
A student may struggle with the idea that they will be doing school work at home now, and that they won’t be at school with their friends for now. A student may also have difficulty with the idea of interacting with their teachers using a screen on a tablet or a computer. These are all things that have never happened before, so it is understandable that it could be a struggle at first, especially for students who have difficulty with other changes to routines.

About the use of Social Stories:
Social stories are an informal type of support tool originally developed by Carol Gray that use words and visuals to help explain specific concepts, experiences, social situations, skills or other necessary tasks in a first-person narrative story line that is supportive and reassuring. Social stories are often used for children with developmental delays or autism. They can also be useful for helping to simply explain a complex concept to any child. (NOTE: This materials is not affiliated, approved, or endorsed in any way by Carol Gray.)


While Social Stories are not ‘cures’ for any and all situations or behaviors they can be helpful! Improvements from social stories will not typically happen after one reading. It is recommended to repeat reading the story to the child over time and talking about the ideas presented in a positive manner. The change and improvements will hopefully occur in a gradual way over time as the child better understands the issue and solutions for this area of struggle.

Please read the ★★★★★ reviews below including:

Wensdae M. on October 11, 2020 Wrote: Extremely satisfied ★★★★★

"Thank you for this simple story that reassures students with autism about school-at-home. The graphics are cute, the language is simple and respectful of the child, the story acknowledges that 'sometimes' things are different from how we expect, and acknowledges that seeing people from school on your screen at home can feel strange."

Brought to you by Don D'Amore MA CCC-SLP TpT, and SpeechPage.com Publishing Co. We felt there was a pressing need for covid visuals for special needs and regular education students. Students with autism in particular may have issues during these changing times of this pandemic. The coronavirus has put all of us in a state of uncertainty. The word Covid-19 did not exist a year ago for anyone and now the need for visual strategies to help our children better understand what is happening is more important than ever! I tried to make this the best covid visual supports! Covid visuals are essential now. I believe Visual Supports for Covid19 should be FREE!

*****This set was designed and illustrated by Don D'Amore MA CCC-SLP, an Award Winning Speech Language Pathologist who has been making customized individual school schedules for large numbers of students in special needs classrooms including many students with autism SD for more than 20 years! *******
