“Social stories” are mini picture books used to help a special needs person develop behavior or prepare for an event. You might remember that we used one to help Joey get ready for his brother’s wedding.
I was goofing off a bit today, and started assembling a “Joey board” on Pinterest. You can check it out right here.
As I picked through my picture files on the computer and pinned them on the board (sorry for all the jargon, which I am sure is, like, so ten minutes ago for more savvy internet people), I realized that a “social story” was in view. Except it was Joey, through his pictures, teaching me.
What’s the story unfolding in the life of the person in your care? And what can it teach you?
