This social story is a great read
for students who may need some support with understanding the impact that swearing can have on those around them and strategies for how they can help themselves calm down when they are upset or angry.
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 get angry or upset.
♦ When I am angry or upset I find it hard to talk.
♦ I might swear at others if I am angry or upset.
♦ If I swear at my friends they might feel upset.
♦ Swearing can make people around me feel uncomfortable.
♦ When I feel like this I could try asking for space.
♦ I could use my communication board to ask for something.
♦ I could go outside for some fresh air.
♦ I could ask to go for a walk.
♦ I could tell my teacher I am upset and they can help me.
♦ If I feel like I need to swear I could whisper to myself.
♦ I could ask to go to an empty place and swear where nobody can hear me.
♦ Sometimes people swear because they think it will make others laugh.
♦ But, swearing is not funny!
♦ I will try to say kind words and not swear.
♦ This will make others happy and want to be near me.
♦ This will make my teacher happy.
♦ And it will make me feel happy too!
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.
