Social Story: Time for Speech!
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 understand how to go to their speech therapy sessions! Transitions to speech sessions can be distressing or confusing for children if they do not know what they will be doing. This material gives step-by-step explanations to prepare children for what to expect.
How to Prepare?
- Print on heavy cardstock or laminate for durability.
- Following the line in the middle of the page, cut each page in half.
- Bind the pages into a booklet or use a hole punch and binder rings.
- Attach a photo of the child’s speech therapist on the opening page.
How to Use?
First, create the social story with your client or child by filling in the blanks and adding pictures. Then, read the story with your client or child before it is time for their speech therapy session. Reading the story after the desired behavior occurs helps reinforce positive social engagements.
