Going to School on Mondays Social Story

Going to School on Mondays Social Story


Social story to address feelings of anxiety that children may experience as they transition into the school week. Designed for Monday mornings, a time that can evoke uncertainty and nervousness, this story gently explores the emotions associated with the start of a new school week. It talks about the challenges of this particular time and offers reassurance. It encourages children to express their feelings and provides practical coping strategies and calming techniques.


The point of a social story is to use a patient and reassuring tone to teach children about social situations in a way that can be easily understood. Social stories can be useful for any child who is struggling to understand a situation or concept or needs help to understand a social skill or social cue, expectations, perspectives, common responses or is troubled about an upcoming event but social stories are particularly useful for children on the autistic spectrum for whom social cues can be challenging and who often suffer anxiety if they do not know what to expect from a situation.


These books should be used over and over to reinforce the point so I would suggest either putting the pages into a display book or laminating and binding them.
