Product Description

Description: This social story is about the relationships we have with other people (family, close friends, peers, friends, acquaintances). The different types of "shared space" are discussed (intimate space, personal space, social space, public space) with matching visuals and examples of social situations.

The end of the story discusses how to use social boundaries to handle a situation when a peer/friend does not want to interact with the student; for example, "You can be friendly without talking to the friend. You can wave or smile at them in the hall or classroom, but only when you first see them -- and only ONE time." There are 8 panels in the story across 4 pages.

Targeted Group: Older elementary, middle, and high school students, and adults who are working on respecting other people's social boundaries, perhaps due to autism, emotional disturbance, or other social impairments.

Use: Read the story with the student/client and discuss personal examples of the people in his/her life. Who are her close friends? Who are her peers? Discuss the pictures and various social activities and think of other examples of similar social situations.

Directions: You will need a color printer with ink, copy paper, a laminator, a hole punch, and a metal ring to bind.

• Print the story in color. Cut the pages in half along the horizontal line.

• Laminate the pages, either separately or back-to-back.

• Punch a hole in the top left corner of the pages.

• Bind with the metal ring.
