Social Stories/Articles

Social Stories is a format for visually presenting children with information they may be missing. Oftentimes, by providing accurate social information children are able to make better social decisions. Carol Gray, an accomplished author and founder in social stories, has developed guidelines to writing good social stories. In addition to social stories, there are social articles for older students. A social article uses a more mature layout that looks like a newspaper article, but is sharing social information. Please enjoy the resources below.
