Social Story: I Can Watch a Fireworks Show!
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.
Seeing a fireworks show for example on New Years, or on 4th of July can be an overstimulating experience for your child. This social story will prepare your child for seeing a fireworks show, and offer coping mechanisms to avoid becoming overwhelmed. This social story includes girl and boy illustrations for 4 different ethnicities, and it can be customized for the needs of your child
Some parts of the story:
- If the fireworks make me feel uncomfortable, I can do a lot of things to feel better.
- I can… (Ask to listen to music through headphones, wear sunglasses if they are too bright, cover my ears, ask to go inside or in a different room, ask to move further away from the fireworks)
- When I do this, the fireworks don’t feel so scary!
