Teaching students appropriate behavior and response/reactions to various situations is a challenge we face as special education teachers. This is why I feel it is so critical to teach these skills in a safe, non-stressful situation, NOT while the behavior is occurring. If you target and protect instructional time to teach these social skills, you are more likely to see them transfer to naturally occurring settings. I know there never seems to be enough time to teach what you need to in a school day, but you will not be sorry if you put time aside every day to work on building better social skills in a thoughtful and structured manner. My hope is that these social stories and related activities will make that task a little easier for you.
