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.

This app is so easy to use and my clients love it. Biggest frustration tho is that the parents also have to have the app before you can share the stories.. It wasn't made clear to me when I purchased the full version. And often parents don't have access to ipad to do this.
Good but needs work
This is a wonderful app. It is really easy to create social stories for students. The pre-made stories are well done. My biggest complaint, is if you upgrade you are only limited to the number of stories you can create. You should have access to the pre-made stories if you pay the upgrade price.
I love this app and have been using it awhile. But recently the app crashes on me within a few seconds of it being opened or during a story. I really need this app back as it is the only thing that my sons uses for help with his daily task. I would totally pay 4.99 for unlimited use if I knew it wasn't going to crash on me again... Please help! iOS 7 iPhone 5/ iPod.
