Over the last decade, Carol Gray's social stories approach has become established as a highly effective way of teaching social and life skills to children on the autistic spectrum.
Taking the form of short narratives, the stories in My Social Stories Book take children step-by-step through basic activities such as brushing your teeth, taking a bath and getting used to new clothes. It also helps children to understand different experiences such as going to school, shopping and visiting the doctor.
These stories are written for preschoolers aged from two to six, and the book is a useful primer for all young children - but most especially those on the autistic spectrum. My Social Stories Book contains over 150 stories and is illustrated throughout with line drawings from Sean McAndrew, which form a visual counterpart to the text. A helpful introduction explains to parents and carers how to get the most out of the book.
