“I Keep My Hands to Myself”
We should all know that when we are with other people we should need to keep your hands to ourselves. If we want to touch someone we need to ask permission. A person with special needs has a hard time understanding this concept. When they are upset they will reach over and hit, scratch or kick someone instead of using their words and expressing their needs more appropriately. Expressing these concepts in every avenue is very important so that the person can generalize what they learn throughout their life. Using visual cues such as social stories helps brings this to a concrete concept that the special needs individual can understand. It’s a great tool for teaching special needs individuals to keep their hands to themselves and not violate others personal space.
This book can be used over and over again to teach your special needs child more appropriate strategies for dealing with things going on in their environment.
Each book is made with double folded 110 cardstock, laminated to keep it nice, and bound for ease in use.
Please check out our store for a more detailed description of each book and the variety of formats (PDF files/CD-roms) we offer.
What is a Social Story
Social Story Books are tools for teaching social skills to children with autism and related disabilities. Social stories provide an individual with accurate information about those situations they may find difficult or confusing. Each situation is described in detail and focus is given to key points: the important social cues, the events and reactions the individual might expect to occur in the situation, the actions and reactions that might be expected of them, and why. The goal of our stories; to increase the individual’s understanding, make them more comfortable, and suggest some appropriate responses for the situation in question.
