No Biting- Social Story
This is a Digital PDF Download
A social story provides a step by step explanation of the why we do not bite our friends. It puts in to context the consequences and implications of why we do not bite our friends. This social story also gives alternative activities we can do instead of biting our friends with our mouths.
For many children there may be confusion as to why biting is not good. For some children they bite to communicate a frustration or an anger. Using this social story will help your learner to understand why we should not bite and what the consequences may be.
The social story is created in a page by page format so you may include or exclude pages as you see fit and place them in which ever order you prefer. I have intentionally included the page “It hurts my friends when I bite them”, to highlight why we do not bite our friends. You can include or exclude pages as you see fit and place them in the order that suits your intended goal.
Use a laminator to ensure longevity of use.
Print and laminate each sheet of the Social Story, cutting down the centre line there after. Attach book rings to create a book format.
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 the different issues highlighted.
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.
