My Social Stories Book by Carol Gray is an “I Wonder Why?” book for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Why do I wash my hands? Why do babies laugh? What will I do at school? What is a babysitter? When do I use a spoon or fork? What is a dream? 150 stories will teach your students important skills every child should learn.
This book is divided into three chapters: Taking Care of Me, Home, and Going Places. It features over 150 stories with fun and casual illustrated line drawings. Written for children ages 2-6 years old, you can use it to teach basic life skills with prompted simple questions with easy to understand answers.
Social stories is a wonderful and an effective way to teach strategies for common situations that we all face. While most of us learn how to handle these situations naturally, it can be frustrating or confusing for those with ASD. Use this resource to start the conversation with your child or student with positive stories and examples.
