Social Stories

Use these stories for inspiration

Social Stories TM use a supportive story format to assist the child in understanding a social skill or concept. They can be used to explain situations in terms of what another person might be thinking and/or why they may behave in certain ways; thus reducing or removing the confusion and unpredictability.

There are ten criterion to follow when writing a story. These guide the writer to develop a story which provides information, social cues, a description of the expected social behaviour and insight into the perspective of all involved.

Check out the links below for free stories developed by speech pathologist Bronwyn Sutton. These stories have been categorised into “Social-Emotional”, “Behavioural” and “Life-Events”.
