Social Stories: Ways to Support Your Kids with Difficult Content

Has your child ever asked you a question about current topics that you have found difficult to answer in a way that you think they could understand and reason?


Social stories are an increasingly used and often effective tool to explain such issues. Social stories are explained as a social learning tool which allows for the safe and meaningful exchange of information between parents, health professionals and children (Carol Gray). They are designed to be aimed at a level that children can understand and interpret. These social stories were first developed to be used for children with autism but have been developed to explain a number of major issues facing society today.
