This social story is a great read for students who may need some support with coping with going to School. A lot of children struggle with understanding why they need to go to School, it may cause them anxiety and they may not even understand why they are going it or what will happen. Hopefully, this social story will help encourage your child(ren)/students to go to School, and also help promote independence.

I recommend printing out each of the individual pages, laminating them and then binding them into a book so it will be easier for students to read - or be read to, as well as being stronger and longer lasting. You can use only the pages that you feel most relevant.
