Do you have pupils who struggle with new experiences, or transitioning between places and activities? Who find social situations difficult, or lack empathy?

Social stories can be miniature manuals for young children. Presented through the art of storytelling, you can use them to teach children about behavioral norms, routines and expectations in an engaging and relatable way.

Principally aimed at children with Autism, Social stories can be used with children who have a wide range of communication, developmental and emotional health needs. This workshop is designed to equip TAs, ECTs and Teachers with an introduction to the principles of Social Stories – whether they are teaching in special or mainstream education setting.

● What are Social Stories?

● How can they help children in my class?

● How do boys and girls respond differently?

Learning Outcomes:

● To look at tools and techniques for effective communication with students with ASD.

● To identify possible pitfalls and have an opportunity to write a social story using a communication template.

● To understand the key criteria of social stories and how they can be adapted to suit different audiences.

● To develop an understanding of how social stories can address more challenging topics.

● To share and discuss classroom concerns with experts in the field.

The session will be led by senior leaders from Frank Wise School, a Special School for children with complex special educational needs. It will give participants lots of practical ideas for achieving effective teams that impact directly on the most vulnerable learners in the classroom.
