Let’s explore how to construct a social story to assist your child’s transition to school

Starting school is an exciting time for families as it marks the transition to formal schooling.

Social Stories can help prepare children for new situations, learn a new behaviour or cope with anxiety.

This session will assist you in writing an individualised social story child’s transition to school.

Come along to explore:

  • Carol Gray’s guidelines for putting social stories together
