Social stories can be miniature manuals for children and young people. Presented through the art of storytelling, you can use them to teach about behavioral 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.

● How can they help children in my class?

● How do boys and girls respond differently?

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.

This session is being run by Helen Jones from Frank Wise School in Banbury, a special school for children and young adults aged between 2 and 19. It will give participants lots of practical ideas for achieving effective teams that impact directly on the most vulnerable learners in the classroom.
