Storytelling to teach children about behavioural norms & routines (SEND)

November 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Social Stories teach behavioral norms, routines and expectations in an engaging and relatable way, through stories.

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 children and young people. Presented through the art of storytelling, you can use them to teach about behavioural 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.

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.
