Special Interest Areas (SIA) are one of the defining characteristics of Autism Spectrum disorders. Individuals get really into (sometimes obsessed) one or more topics. The SIA can be really beneficial because students are very motivated to engage in their SIA. Although I recommend all teachers use SIAs to your advantage and integrate them into all content areas, there will be times that this does not happen.

There are times when the SIA needs to be paused so other learning can take place.

This social story has vibrant pictures and is gear towards a younger audience to teach them what a SIA is and give a strategy for taking a break from their SIA if needed to do something else. 10 pages (including the cover) and a Free first then schedule that you can laminate and use a wet erase marker with.
