When a child elopes/ runs away it can be a terrifying moment as they could get lost or seriously injured. In this social story we focus on out in the community with a parent and family and why we must listen to our parents to stay safe and why running away/eloping is never okay.
This resource also comes with x20 Assorted Visual Support Cue Cards to communicate with your child.
Sit down with your child at a time they are relaxed and engaged. Read through the story and encourage any questions they may have. For students who may not be able to read, read the story for them and use the visual icons to help your child/student understand what their daily routine will be like once they start going to school. I would recommend reading this story daily in advance of school starting.
Ensure you keep your tone calm, relaxed and open to hearing/understanding any worries or anxieties your student/child may have. Use each page as a jumping off point for other worries your child may be feeling.
