Scripted stories can be used to help children understand new or unfamiliar situations, expectations, social interactions, social cues, and/or social rules. They are brief descriptive stories that provide guidance and directions for responding to different situations. They may use images and/or words to present the situation and are specific to the individual and their circumstances. When children are given information that helps them prepare for and understand the expectations of a situation, it can help to reduce or minimize problem behavior within that situation. Scripted Stories can help to promote self awareness, self calming and self management. Parents, teachers and caregivers can use these simple stories to prepare the child for a new situation, to address challenging behavior within a setting or situation, or to teach new skills.
