A social story is a learning tool that helps parents, professionals and children or young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) to exchange information with each other in a way that’s meaningful and understandable to the person.
Social stories were developed in 1990 by Carol Gray, a respected consultant who works with autistic people.
