Learning to Wait! A Social Story

Social Stories are often used to teach social skills to persons with various disabilities and disorders (the most well known being persons with ASD-Austism Spectrum Disorders).  I personally LOVE social stories for ALL children no matter what their diagnosis!  Why, you ask? For several reasons:
1.  Social stories are usually short, clear and concise.
2.  Social stories target a specific social skill.
3.  Social stories explain the behaviors you want the child to exhibit.
4.  Social stories have visuals to aid in comprehension and learning!

I created this simple social story about waiting because that is one of the first skills children I work on when children return from their long summer break.  Enjoy!
