Product Description

This social story is a great read for students who may need some support and help to understand the process of getting arrested, and why this may happen.

Many students with autism are visual learners and like to learn through seeing something in action. This book comes complete with matching, simple yet engaging graphics to help describe what is being said on the page.

Comes in col option only - no b/w availability, however you can print in grayscale.

Pages included are;

♦ In our classroom and school we have rules.

♦ There are also rules for us to follow in the world, they are called laws.

♦ I should do my best to make sure I never break the law.

♦ If I break a rule in class or school, my teacher may tell my parents.

♦ Or they may give me a red mark and tell me to try better next time.

♦ If I break a law, this is very different.

♦ If I break the law, there are different punishments.

♦ If I speed, I may get a fine and points.

♦ If I hit someone, I may get a fine and have to do community service.

♦ This is where I work, unpaid, in the community.

♦ If I really hurt someone, I will get arrested.

♦ Then, I will need to get a lawyer.

♦ I will have to go to prison if I break the law like this.

♦ Prison is where people have broken serious laws.

♦ When I am arrested, the police will question me.

♦ The police may ask me where I was on a certain day and time.

♦ The police may talk to other people, they will be called witnesses.

♦ I may have to hand over my belongings. I will get them back when I am released.

♦ I will be kept in a cell, while I wait.

♦ I will be allowed a phone call. I should call my family or close friend.

♦ I may feel scared or upset. I should try to stay calm when I have been arrested.

♦ Sometimes, the police may make a mistake.

♦ I may not have done anything wrong, and the police have made a mistake.

♦ I should answer all their questions, truthfully.

♦ I should stay calm and co-operate. My lawyer will advise me too.

♦ Then, the police will listen to me, and hopefully, soon I’ll be released.

♦ If I get arrested, the police may put me in hand cuffs.

♦ Getting arrested may make me feel sad or angry.

♦ This is ok. But I will remember to try and stay calm.
