First defined by Carol Gray in 1991, they were created to help break down a task or social situation into smaller steps with descriptive words and pictures. They can help to prevent temper tantrums or meltdowns in public places or aggressive behavior in children. They can be very useful for working with defiant children when trying to get them to do things/go places they typically refuse or resist. They also work well for telling your child about a new experience to provide relief for any anxiety related to an event.
Autism social story examples include going to the grocery store, going to the doctor, going to school, and riding the bus. However, all children can benefit from using a potty training story along with other valuable potty training tips.
