Social stories help prepare children for transitions and experiences. You can modify this one, about a morning time routine, to fit the needs of your child. Have fun with it! Draw illustrations together or google images of children going through a morning routine if you want to add a visual. These stories work well with most children and we recommend reading this one multiple times if getting out the door is a struggle!
When the sun comes up, it is time to wake up and get ready for school!
I will get out of bed and eat my breakfast.
Then, I will get dressed. Mom will give me a choice of what to wear. I can choose the clothes that I like best!
Next, it is time to brush my teeth. Mom will set the timer and I will brush for one minute. Then, mom will brush for one minute!
Time to get my back pack! Mom will make sure I have what I need.
Now, I can get into my carseat and ride to school.
Hooray! I am ready for the day!
