Some students shut down when asked to try something new. They may become unresponsive or they may tantrum in response to our efforts. Use this little book when the child is calm. Talk through the plan. Pre-teach the next new activity by reading the book, then, with the child, find some portion of the activity that the child is willing to try. Take small steps toward the larger goal.
Social stories are an entertaining format that children can relate to. They are a basis for discussion and can be used over and over. These stories state the problem, why it's a problem, and what to do about it.
Print and fold this Little Book as many times as you like (Folding instructions included). Send a copy home so parents can read it with their child and reinforce your efforts in school. If a copy is damaged, print another. Collect an assortment of these little social story books and allow your students to read the books whenever they like.
You can even LAMINATE the books so they will survive even the most challenging students! (See the FAQ included for hints on how to do this.)
