2.  It Can Be Fun To Go to School.

Going back to school does not have to be scary. It can be fun. Your child will meet a new teacher , make new friends to play. This can be a positive experience. I spoke to Niam’s new teacher before the first day of school, and was able to arrange a meeting with another girl in his special education class. This helped foster a relationship in advance and help with socialization.

3.  There Will Be New Rules At School.

The Free Autism Back To School Social Story does not describe the new rules of school. But this is very important for a child to understand. To not make the Back To School Social Story very long, we created a separate social story called I Can Follow Rules At School. This social story visually goes over some of the basic school rules. For example, no running, only walking, and holding the railing. This can be a book you download for free and laminate. I have made a binder of social stories for Niam and periodically go over them and discuss different school rules.

4. It is Fun To Learn And Go To New Classes

It is important to discuss transition with your child. In school there are many transitions like going to new classes, using different binders and walking from class to class. Use the social story to talk about the unique transitions for your child. It might be useful to make a checklist to help with transition.

Going Back To School can be overwhelming for children. There are many changes.  There are many techniques and different visuals that can be used to help your child. Social stories is just one amongst many. Ideally pairing social stories with other evidence based methods is the best.
