PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Using a Calm Voice Social Story is created for an older or more mature audience that includes students with autism and other special learning needs. This social story on using a calm voice addresses students who would get really loud when they were agitated or confused in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the importance of using a calm voice when upset. This repetition encourages internalization of remaining calm.

See preview for more detail on content.

*****************************************************************************
Teaching students appropriate behavior and response/reactions to various situations is a challenge we face as special education teachers. This is why I feel it is so critical to teach these skills in a safe, non-stressful situation, NOT while the behavior is occurring. If you target and protect instructional time to teach these social skills, you are more likely to see them transfer to naturally occurring settings. I know there never seems to be enough time to teach what you need to in a school day, but you will not be sorry if you put time aside every day to work on building better social skills in a thoughtful and structured manner. My hope is that these social stories and related activities will make that task a little easier for you.
