Using social stories to help your child prepare for school

Social stories are proactive tools designed to reduce transition anxiety and help your child build essential knowledge for the new school. The stories can describe the key places, people and activities your child will encounter in their typical school day, and why they are important. A social story can also explain some of the important social expectations and the unwritten rules and patterns of behaviour expected of them while at school.
