Successful social articles into adulthood : growing up with social stories

Timmins, Siobhan2018
Social Stories are acknowledged as a very successful way of teaching concepts and social understanding to individuals with autism spectrum conditions. This guide focuses on some of the most common issues that arise during a young adult's life. The stories and articles engage with the various stages of applying for a job, adjusting to a work environment, maintaining physical and mental health, and staying safe. Along with the sample stories are explanations of how to create your own story to develop further understanding and draw connections between each story and the issues they depict. From practical skills such as dressing for an interview, to identifying emotions and recognising symptoms of depression, this book takes Social Stories a step further and adapts them to the realities of adult life.
