Why Social Stories Work…
Why do they work? Here are a couple reasons: Children on the spectrum are visual learners; so a Social Story with vibrant supporting pictures immediately resonates. Just as important is the choice of words used in the story. Also, all children retain information when it is repeated to them.

Then, it becomes easier to take those messages and make them applicable to real life situations.
