Are you teaching or supporting students with special educational needs (SEN) who are struggling with social rules and conventions? This book introduces you to the concept of social stories which are a positive and practical way to help children with these difficulties.

The new edition of this book has over 90 examples of social stories, including over 30 new stories and also contains a new section on: Why social stories are important; How to use them in your setting; How to write your own social stories

Suitable for use with children of any age, the book includes examples for those children with language delays, communication difficulties, difficult behavior, antisocial behavior, as well as those with autism.

Broken down into eight sections it is easy to find an example suitable for the situation you are facing so you can work together with the child to create their personal story.

I Like Looking into My Friends' Classrooms
I like looking into my friends' classrooms

Sometimes when I am walking round the school I see someone I know in a classroom.

I like to say hello to them. I like being friendly.

I look through the window and pull funny faces.

This makes all the people inside look at me.

This makes the teacher cross because it interrupts his work.

It stops the pupils from working.

I will try not to look into people's classrooms.

I will walk straight past.
