This social story is a great read for students who may need some support with hitting. A lot of children hit others as a sign of frustration, anxiety, pain etc. - sometimes we may even find no explanation for why they are hitting but hopefully this social story will help reduce hitting behaviours.
It is a general book full of different things your hands can be used for as well as why we shouldn't hit - how it makes others feel, and how we can calm ourselves down.
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;
♦ I can use my hands to clap.
♦ I can use my hands to wave.
♦ I can use my hands to high five.
♦ I can use my hands to pull.
♦ I can use my hands to give hugs.
♦ Sometimes I get angry and hit.
♦ I may get angry if someone says something mean to me.
♦ I may get angry if I have to wait.
♦ My friends are sad if I hit them.
♦ It is ok to feel angry.
♦ But it is not ok to hit or hurt others.
♦ If I am angry, I can count to 10.
♦ Or, I can read a book.
♦ Or, I can relax.
♦ Or, I can have a hug.
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.
