This social story is a great read
for students who may need some support and help when they meet new people, how they can behave when meeting new people and the opportunities it may bring.
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, we might meet someone new.
♦ We see lots of new people every day - in shops, driving past us and we might even see new people in school.
♦ If I want to, I can introduce myself to the new person. I can say “Hi, I am _______"
♦ I can also wave to them, smile at them or shake their hand.
♦ They might do the same back and introduce themselves to me, so I know their name.
♦ We might start to talk and I can ask them questions to find out more about them.
♦ This will help us to build a friendship.
♦ I could ask “How are you today?” or “What do you like to do in your spare time?”
♦ It is nice to meet new people and make new friends.
♦ They might have the same hobbies as me so we can do things together.
♦ They might ask me questions too, this is ok. I don’t have to answer any questions that make me feel uncomfortable.
♦ If we want to meet up again, we could exchange social media, email addresses or phone numbers.
♦ I can then arrange with my new friend to do something.
♦ If they want to meet up we can arrange a day, tie and activity to do together.
♦ If they don’t want to meet up, that’s ok, there are lots of new people I can meet and hang out with.
