If you are new to the concept of social stories, here is the 'go-to' resource for learning how social stories can be used to support students with Autism. A social story is written in a, "patient and reassuring manner that is easily understood by its audience". Carol Gray, the creator of the social stories concept, outlines how social stories can be used to strengthen social learning, prepare students for transitions, and provide information about situations and events to the audience. A comprehensive outline of the purpose and method for creating social stories can be found at The Gray Centre for Social Learning and Understanding.
