This social story is a great read for students who may need some support and help to understand what they should and shouldn't do, if they should find themselves lost in a store. It also discusses how they should behave in a store.
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;
♦ Sometimes I go shopping with my family.
♦ We have to go shopping to get food for our home.
♦ Shops can be very busy so I should stay by my family.
♦ Sometimes, I might see something I like and run off.
♦ I shouldn’t run off or go somewhere without telling my family.
♦ I should wait for my family to come with me.
♦ Sometimes, I may run off and then not be able to find my family.
♦ Or, I may be looking at something and my family lose me.
♦ If I am lost, I may feel scared, angry or upset.
♦ This is ok. I should take a deep breath to help me calm down.
♦ I should look around for a member of staff.
♦ Staff members will have a uniform on, with the shop name.

♦ If I can’t find a security guard, I should go to a cashier.
♦ I should only go with a staff member, they will help me find my family.
