This social story is a great read for students who may need some support and help to understand what happens when they go onto the playground, how they should behave and what to expect.
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.
