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.

A great book for any setting, the stories are practical and achievable, the language is down to earth and believable, and the subjects include those that we are often embarrassed to deal with. A must-have for the SEN practitioner.
