Social Stories for Reducing Fear in the Outdoors.
Chapman, Lawrence; Trowbridge, Marion
Horizons, n121 p38-40 Aut 2000
Pupils with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) fear the unknown and changes to their routine. Their fears may be unexpected, such as what is for breakfast. "Social stories" can alleviate such fears by giving a detailed account of each day's activities. A case study shows how a social story in diary form helped a boy with ASD cope with an outdoor trip.
