This story helped Lizi's son manage his anxiety about her coughing when she was ill.
Social stories were created by Carol Gray as a way of helping people on the autistic spectrum to understand social situations and give information about what to expect and how they might react to those situations.
Social stories can be an extremely effective way of helping people with autism cope better with situations they find difficult. Lizi has spent time learning how to write a great social story and has used them in her own home to help her son cope with various anxiety-inducing situation including getting a haircut, hearing a dog bark, and knowing what do to when people are unwell.
For a nominal charge Lizi will write a personalised social story for your child if they are on the autistic spectrum and are having difficulties with a particular situation. Please contact Lizi for more information.
