Social stories are an important type of visual support often used with children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or other special need. This social stories found in this app use simple text and descriptive pictures to explain the why and how of different social skills.
Social interactions may be especially difficult for children with an autism spectrum disorder, adhd, or other social delay. Many children, especially those diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome and other special need, often fail to pick up on social cues, making learning a social skill especially difficult. Social stories may increase awareness and maintenance of social skills.
Social stories were first defined by Carol Gray in 1991 and are commonly used to break down a task or social situation into small and easy to understand steps, often accompanied by descriptive pictures. Social stories are incredibly easy to implement and are used by many professionals for a wide range of behaviors.

Great app for padaeducators!
I work as a paraeducator at an elementary school and this is an awesome app for social stories! My students love the pre made stories and also love creating their own! And it's so easy to share the story they made with other paraeducators and teachers !
Highly recommended if you're looking for an app for social stories for working as an educator
I would give this app 5 stars, but the main reason I downloaded it was to print social stories for my students to have in the gen ed classroom. I am unable to send the stories to my email or print them out :/ I also tried to contact the developers, but the button to report a problem does not work either. Please fix the printing/emailing issues!!!!
Great app! My student with autism loved this app. I did, however, have trouble when I tried emailing the PDF file to my email. It does not send as a PDF and therefore the computer cannot read it. I would love it if this was fixed so that I could print the story out! Thanks!
