This social story is a great read
for students who may need some support with going to the Doctor. A lot of children struggle with going to the Doctor, it may cause them anxiety and they may not even understand
why they are going there or what to expect - mostly worried about pain. Hopefully, this social story will help encourage
your child(ren)/students to go their to the Doctor, and also help promote independence
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;
♦ This is a Doctor. Doctors help people who are sick.
♦ I have to go to the Doctors surgery to see the Doctor.
♦ I give the reception my name.
♦ I may have to wait in the waiting room.
♦ When my name is called, I will go into the Doctor’s room.
♦ I may have to stand on scales to have my weight checked.
♦ I may stand by a tall ruler to measure how tall I am.
♦ I may have my blood pressure taken through a strap on my arm.
♦ I may have to have a shot, this may hurt a little bit but it’s quick!
♦ The Doctor will ask how I am feeling.
♦ If I don’t feel well, I can tell the Doctor or show the Doctor.
♦ The Doctor will use special equipment to look in my ears.
♦ The Doctor will look in my throat and use an object to push down my tongue.
♦ The Doctor may use a stethoscope to listen to my heartbeat.
♦ The Doctor can use the stethoscope to listen to my lungs too. I have to do some deep breaths.
♦ If I am hurting anywhere the Doctor will check there too.
♦ The Doctor may check my eyes with a test.
♦ I may have my hearing checked too.
♦ When I am finished, I can say goodbye!
I recommend printing out each of the individual pages, laminating them and then binding them into a book so it will be easier for students to read - or be read to, as well as being stronger and longer lasting. You can use only the pages that you feel most relevant.
