We know it will be hard for some to come back to school. Below are a few Social Stories that may help.
What are Social Stories?
When a child is missing a skill or struggling to navigate a situation, social stories can help. If possible, it’s especially powerful to include pictures of the child or children in action throughout the story. Read social stories often to ensure children understand the message. Pause after each page to ask or answer questions, and even roleplay if it’s helpful. Remember, too, that reading a story can always represent a precious moment of connection. Be present as you read the story with your child, enjoying your time together. Connection translates into increased cooperation, willingness, and impulse control. During these unprecedented times, connection with our loved ones is more valuable than ever.
