Parenting Aspergers Children - Support Group Sometimes 'non-verbal' social stories are great for Aspies. Re: How is this a social story, and what is the message? ... It hopefully sends the message to kids that Aspergers is NOT something to be feared or ashamed of (although I'm sure there are a variety of messages that can be drawn). This was the creation of a playful Aspergers child -- more power to him !!!

What Are Social Stories?

Social stories” describe situations, skills, or concepts that model relevant social cues, perspectives, and common responses. The goal of a social story is to teach specific skills in a manner that is easily understood by children with Aspergers and other Autism Spectrum Disorders. The child’s improved understanding of social events and expectations that result from reading/watching social stories often leads to more effective responses from the child.

Social stories for children with behavior problems due to Aspergers and other Autism Spectrum Disorders help teach more appropriate social skills. These children don't just “pick-up” social skills, so social stories can provide a great tool in teaching a skill in a direct way.

Social stories for these children help to give them a better understanding of other people's thoughts, feelings and views. They also help the child to better predict other people’s behavior based on their actions.

Social stories present various situations in a structured and direct way so that the child can understand a situation without having to "read between the lines". Social stories are written from the child's perspective and are simply illustrated using uncluttered drawings or photographs to depict each step of the story.

Social stories can be written about many different social and behavioral situations that children encounter in the school or any other environment. Some possible ideas for social stories include:

• circle time
• getting in line
• sharing toys
• sitting in the lunch room
• taking turns on the swings
• taking turns when playing games
• or any other situation that causes confusion for the child
