Due to the stay-at-home orders in response to COVID-19, our office is currently closed. Orders will be shipped from our office in Chicago, IL as soon as normal operations resume. We know you’re eager to receive your apparel, and we're grateful for your patience during this time.
Use this social story to help your client or child feel prepared to go to the dentist! Trips to the dentist can often feel unfamiliar or disruptive to a child’s daily routine. This material will set your child up for success with step-by-step descriptions and choices in regulation strategies for how to navigate this experience.
Read through the social story together with your client or child. You can choose to read the story before their trip to the dentist, perhaps every day for a week in advance.
This social story can be customized to fit the needs of each child by including or excluding certain pages depending on their needs and age. You can also paste pictures of your child, their caregiver, and their dentist over the images on the pages!
Six variations are included in an effort to represent the diversity of your caseloads.
