Social skills stories are designed to help people on the autism spectrum develop greater social understanding.

On this page I will tell you a bit more about them and how they can help your child on the autism spectrum to learn and remember the social skills they struggle with.

What are social skills stories?

Social skills stores are short descriptions with pictures / images of a situation, event or activity, that include information about what to expect in that situation and why.

How do social stories work?

They can help your child learn self-care skills like for example brushing their teeth, washing their hair, flushing the toilet, washing their hands and so on

They can help a person with autism understand how others might behave or respond in a particular situation - such as playing games, during recess, in a fire drill, at a party or celebration and so on

They can help a person with autism understand changes to routines, or how to cope with events that may cause them upset like a teacher being absent, vising the dentist and death

They can help your child understand social rules such inappropriate behaviours like keeping their hands to themselves, no hitting and being polite and so on

Are social stories effective?

As an ABA therapist I use social stories on a regular basis and have found them very effective. Here is an example of a social story, pictures / images are added to the story.

Example of a social skills story - Drawing my thoughts


Everybody has a mind. I have a mind too and it is thinking all the time.

Sometimes I might think of something that I want other people to know. Like when I want a drink.

When I want other people to know what is in my mind, I can try to tell them by using my voice I can use words.

If I can't tell people by using my voice, I can draw a picture. This is ok

When I draw pictures people can see what I am thinking and what I want them to know. I will try to draw pictures when I can't use my voice.

You can Download and Print ALL of my social skills stories

All of the stories available on this page are available for download today and can printed as well as easily edited to include your child's name and any other relevant information such as sibling's names, class mates and so on.

Plus if you are not happy, you can simply email me for a full refund.

How to Implement Social stories

  • Introduce the social skills story to your child at a time when everyone is calm and relaxed. This will help create positive associations with the story.
  • Use a direct approach when you introduce the social skills story to your child, for example you might want to say something like I have written this story for you. It is about……. Let's read it together.
  • Review the social story as often as you feel necessary - some social stories will be reviewed initially once a day, others prior to the situation for which they were written.
  • Stay positive when reviewing the social story and use a calm tone of voice. This is important and will help the social story to have the required effect.
  • You may want to involve others in the review of the social story. For example, a teacher or learning support assistant.
  • Introduce one story at a time so your child does not become overwhelmed with information.

Autism Social Skills Stories are treatments for autism which CAN help children with ASD cope with and understand the skills and behaviours that they struggle with.
