    Do you need practical resources that prepare your students for common scenarios like birthday parties, restaurants, supermarkets/grocery shopping, and doctor's office visits?

    These community outings can be challenging for students with autism, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, or other related disabilities. They are a common life events, but can result in negative behaviors if children are not prepared for the sensory stimuli and social expectations.

    Unfamiliar sounds, long periods of waiting, and changes in routine - these experiences can make children feel anxious, overstimulated, scared, and impatient. But we know from research that preparing children for novel events often leads to more positive outcomes.

    As an educator, you want to teach your students practical skills that they can use in the real world. As an SLP myself, I frequently use social stories and visual schedules to help children transition and prepare for a variety of scenarios. That is why I created this resource to help children prepare for some of the most common real-world events that often get overlooked.

    All of the activities in this workbook bundle have been vetted by educators in the field to ensure they can be used in a theme-based lesson, across a variety of age groups, and adhere to the highest quality. Inside each workbook you will find:

    1. A communication board
    2. Picture cards
    3. Inferencing activities
    4. Problem-solving activity
    5. Role play games
    6. Arts & craft activity
    7. Fun-with-food activity
    8. Sequencing activity
    9. Take home activities (emergent & fluent readers)

    You wouldn't go into a job interview or travel to a new country without knowing what to expect, because you know it might lead to failure or frustration. Similarly, you need to prepare your students for common real-world events so they can be successful.

    This bundle will help you prepare your students for community outings from a fun and safe place so they will know what to expect the next time they encounter each scenario.
