Writing Effective Social Stories and Social Narratives for Autistic Children

Writing Effective Social Stories and Social Narratives for Autistic Children

Social Stories were first developed by Carol Gray, and are an extremely effective, and evidence based strategy for teaching autistic learners, and those with other social communication disorders, about what to expect, and what is expected, in a wide range of situations. ‘Social narrative’ is an umbrella term that includes Social Stories as well as other simple stories that visually represent social situations and behaviours for autistic learners.

In this short webinar, participants will learn what a Social Story/ narrative is, what they can be used for, their essential features, and how to write effective Social Stories/ narratives for the children that they work with.

This webinar is suitable for primary and post-primary teachers, SNAs and parents who wish to learn the basics of Social Story/ narrative writing.

Participants will receive free, sample social stories which they can edit for their own students.
