SEND Spotlight on: Social Stories

Social storiesTM were created by Carol Gray in 1991. They are simple explanations of a particular event or activity.  Social stories help the reader to understand what will happen in a certain situation and how they should respond.

The terms ‘social story’ and ‘social stories’ are trademarks originated and owned by Carol Gray.


Whilst Social Stories are used frequently to support children and adults with Autism navigate new situations, they are useful for all children and adults, especially for those feeling anxious about the unknown.
