Product Description
These Social Scripts or Social Stories help kids with autism understand and develop coping strategies for managing emotions. Emotions targeted include feeling: angry, sad, excited, nervous, overwhelmed, confused, bored, hungry/thirsty, sick, grumpy, and scared. There are a total of 11 stories. The first 11 include images of a boy while the second set include images of a girl.

A cover page is also included, so that your students can decorate their own social scripts binders.

These can be used for grades 2-6. These can be implemented by the classroom teacher, special education teacher, school counselor, social worker, paraprofessional, or school psychologist.

Two Versions for Each Story!
Two different versions of each story are included: Standard and Simple. The standard (or advanced) version includes more detail, stronger vocabulary, and more wording. These would be appropriate for students with stronger language and reading skills. The simple version includes much simpler vocabulary, smaller font and less wording. These would be best for kids with lower language or reading abilities. This allows you to choose which story would best fit the needs of your students.

How to Use
Social scripts are a great way for children to learn routines and how to handle specific situations. They are particularly helpful for children with autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), anxiety, Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and other students with special needs (Special Education).

In order to teach a particular skill or routine, first read the script with the child. Let them know that this is a way to help them during the situation. Let them ask you questions and become involved in the solution. After first reading the script with the child, then the student should read the script to him/herself. Then, when the child is feeling angry, scared, or any other emotion, prompt him or her to read the script. This allows students to become more independent and prompt themselves to make positive choices before challenging situations.
