★ NEW! AUGUST 2020!
Free! Two Social Stories For Helping Students Who Are Struggling With Some Of The Issues Of School-At-Home During Distance Learning Covid-19.
Each Story Has SIX Pages Of Story Text Along With Colorful Illustrations!
★ “I Can Have School At Home Sometimes!”
Designed to help a student who is struggling with having ‘school-at-home’ now. The student may miss interacting with friends at school, and struggle with some of the aspects of school-at-home.
★ “I Can Use A Screen For School When I Am At Home!”
Designed to help a student who is struggling with coming to a video screen such as a tablet or computer to participate in ‘school-at-home’.
How They Can Be Helpful:
As a large number of schools across our nation transition to a ‘school- at-home’ experience during the COVD-19 pandemic, many of our students, especially those on the autism spectrum or with other special needs, may struggle with the transition. Sometimes it is difficult to explain some of the complicated new ways of experiencing school form home to our students.
A student may struggle with the idea that they will be doing school work at home now, and that they won’t be at school with their friends for now. A student may also have difficulty with the idea of interacting with their teachers using a screen on a tablet or a computer. These are all things that have never happened before, so it is understandable that it could be a struggle at first, especially for students who have difficulty with other changes to routines.
About the use of Social Stories:
Social stories are an informal type of support tool originally developed by Carol Gray that use words and visuals to help explain specific concepts, experiences, social situations, skills or other necessary tasks in a first-person narrative story line that is supportive and reassuring. Social stories are often used for children with developmental delays or autism. They can also be useful for helping to simply explain a complex concept to any child. (NOTE: This materials is not affiliated, approved, or endorsed in any way by Carol Gray.)
While Social Stories are not ‘cures’ for any and all situations or behaviors they can be helpful! Improvements from social stories will not typically happen after one reading. It is recommended to repeat reading the story to the child over time and talking about the ideas presented in a positive manner. The change and improvements will hopefully occur in a gradual way over time as the child better understands the issue and solutions for this area of struggle.
