First Day At School Helped By A Social Story

Today was a big step for us as Jenna starts Junior school. With Jennas learning difficulties we have had lots of problems anxieties and very nervous about leaving the comfort and security of her infant school. Cumulating into first day at school nerves.

The TA at her infant school devised a social story for Jenna who has constantly read looked at all summer to help calm her nerves. We did it Jenna went to school no meltdowns no tears so proud of her. She stood in the playground lined up and walked into school. We had a slight wobble just before she went in but she kept it all together.

  1. This is fantastic Im so glad it worked. I have been told about social stories but we havent used them yet. I can see us needing them as we get older. Its so nice that her previous teacher took the time to do this for her.
