Product Description
Description: Use this social story to teach your child(ren) or students about nap time. This is a 4-page story (if each page is cut in half horizontally, 2 panels per page) with color pictures and simple phrases to engage your youngest students or your older students with autism or other developmental differences.

Inspiration: The story was made specifically for a 3-year-old boy who did not like to take naps! The story begins with a general overview of nap time (e.g., I’m sleepy, my body needs to rest, I lie down on my bed or nap mat). Then there are reminders about behavior during nap (e.g., be quiet, someone will pat my back if I can’t sleep, I can read a book quietly if I can’t sleep). You may choose to offer time limits, such as “I will pat your back for 5 minutes” or “You can read a book after 1 hour of quiet time”.

Targeted Group: Young talkers (2 – 3 years old) through older children with developmental differences. The language is simple, with words like “play with my friends” and “nap mat”.

Use: Read the story with the child often to help the child remember the concepts. It is important to read the story as a behavior modification during, before, and after nap, to help the child make the connection between the behaviors and the social story.

Directions: You will need a color printer with ink, copy paper, a laminator, a hole punch, and a metal ring to bind.

• Print the story in color.
• Cut each page in half horizontally, leaving 2 panels on top and 2 panels on bottom.
• Organize the story into 4 pages.
• Laminate the pages, either separately or back-to-back.
• Punch a hole in the top left corner of the pages.
• Bind with the metal ring.
