Sākotnēji sociālie stāsti tika izstrādāti, lai atbalstītu bērnus ar ASD uz individuālu atbalstu. Tomēr praktiķi ir sapratuši, cik noderīgi ir izmantot šos stāstus ar bērniem, kuriem ir sociālas cīņas dažādu iemeslu dēļ, gan individuāli, gan visu grupu apmācībā.
Social Stories for coping skill. Use Social Stories in the classroom for direct instruction!
Stefanie has a difficult time managing her anger and frustration. She can become physically aggressive towards other students. This most often happens during transitions and recess.
Mr. Yetz created a social story on StoryboardThat to help Stefanie learn how to better deal with her feelings. He reads the story with her each morning and practices her coping strategies with her.
Mr. Yetz collects data to monitor her progress. If her behavior changes or if Stefanie is able to identify a different, effective coping strategy, Mr. Yetz will alter the social story to reflect these changes.
