Social Stories are beneficial for helping children, especially those with an autism spectrum disorder learn how to deal with different situations or challenges. A Social Story is a short story that describes a skill, situation, context, or concept. Frequently the story will include information that is assumed that "everyone knows" and uses a positive tone through descriptive and coaching sentences. Social Stories guide the child to an increased understanding of an event or situation and hopefully improves the child's behavior during the event or situation.
Having a substitute teacher can be very hard for a student with autism. This story helps let the child know that sometimes a substitute may not do everything the same as the teacher and that the teacher will come back.
This packet includes the following:
- A full-size book that can be read to the entire class. This story is great to read at the beginning of the year or the day before you know you are going to have a substitute in the class.
