This social story is a great read for students who may need some support with going on a plane. A lot of children struggle with understanding the process of what is involved going on a plane, it may cause them anxiety and they may not even understand why they need to do the things asked of them. Hopefully, this social story will help encourage your child(ren)/students to get onto a plane, 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.
