Writing & Developing Social Stories

Practical Interventions in Autism

Dr. Caroline Smith

This practical resource provides an introduction to the theory and practice of writing social stories. In addition, there are examples of successful stories to use as guides, as well as information and photocopiable resources for delivering training on the use of social stories.

Based on detailed work carried out in homes, schools and pre-schools, this book offers practical support to anyone meeting the needs of a child or young adult with an autistic spectrum disorder. Social stories are short stories intended for children with autism to help them understand their social world and behave appropriately within it. The stories:

Provide clear, concise and accurate information about what is happening in a specific situation, outlining both why it is happening and what a typical response might be;

Are written by those directly supporting a child with autism and only successful stories are included in the book;

Are infinitely flexible and adaptable to an individual child in an individual social situation;

Covers children aged 3 to 16.

"We were most impressed by the manuscript and feel it will provide an excellent resource. The academic background is sound, and the general presentation is very user friendly."

Maureen Aarons & Tessa Gittens, Specialist SLTs
