Kind Words Social Story

A social story for children who have been hurting others’ feelings with their words. It explains ways that our words can be kind and ways that our words can be unkind and hurt others. It explains the consequences of using unkind words and encourages children to not say unkind things and to think before they speak.

The point of a social story is to use a patient and reassuring tone to teach children about social situations in a way that can be easily understood. Social stories can be useful for any child who is struggling to understand a situation or concept or needs help to understand a social skill or social cue, expectations, perspectives, common responses or is troubled about an upcoming event but social stories are particularly useful for children on the autistic spectrum for whom social cues can be challenging and who often suffer anxiety if they do not know what to expect from a situation.

These books should be used over and over to reinforce the point so I would suggest either putting the pages into a display book or laminating and binding them.
