This social story introduces the SOCIAL FAKE. The “Social Fake” is the ultimate in FLEXIBLE THINKING. Not everyone likes what you like. And vise versa, you will not like everything other kids like. BUT in order to make and KEEP friends, you have to SORT of pretend or fake that you are interested. Now you don’t have to pretend you like it, just be interested. Because you see,everyone just wants other people to listen and understand their likes. It’s human nature for many people. Great for students on the autism spectrum.
