I am calm social stories
What does it mean to be "calm"? This is not a word commonly used by children and yet adults ask children to "calm down" or "settle down" or be "calm" in certain environments. Being "calm" can be an abstract term. These social stories may be used to help children to apply concrete behavior and expectations to assist with social awareness and self regulation.
The blank version of the social story is suitable for children who can reflect on a personalized view of being "calm". They may be encouraged to consider what environments are they expected to be calm, who expects them to be calm and what may help them to calm down appropriately. These children may identify times when they are not calm and when this may be appropriate. If particular pages are not applicable to your child, the page may be omitted from your child's social story.
The social story with images is suitable for young children or children who are unable to identify when and where they are expected to be calm. There are also a variety of "calm down" activities provided as options to assist with regulation. Children may be encouraged to try some and circle the activities which are beneficial to them.
