Starting Preschool - Social Story
A social story provides a step-by-step explanation of Starting School for the first time. It puts into context what starting School may mean for a child. This social story provides practical information about what going to School entails, what the student may expect and what expectations there may be for the student. The information is presented in a child friendly manner, with accessible visual imagery to help make concrete, the abstract concepts that some may find difficult to conceptualize
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. 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 center 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.
