Social Stories

This afternoon Zack is off at a birthday party. We were able to just drop him off at the big wood park where the party is taking place. We didn’t always have it so easy. Far from it. I remember going to parties filled with tantrums and screaming and hand flapping. Not too many, mind you. The invitations were quite rare back then. Even though those times were tough, they would have been infinitely worse if we hadn’t talked with Zack beforehand about what to expect…the rules for musical chairs, pin the tail on the donkey, the noise, the chaos, the sugar…It didn’t help much at the beginning of our journey, when Zack’s receptive language was too delayed for real comprehension; but as he got older it helped a lot. We still use social stories from time to time, with all of our children. What do you say when someone gives you a gift you already have? “Thank you, I love it.”…not, “I already have one of these.” Yikes!

Remember, if you want to save three dollars on Accept No Autism, visit before it is too late. :0)
