Social Stories are a social learning tool that supports the safe and meaningful exchange of information between parents, professionals, and people with autism of all ages. 

My favorites are the following:

  • I can use my words

  • I work at school

  • I am not done

  • I need help

  • Sharing my feelings

  • It’s okay to get upset

  • I keep my hands to myself

  • Waiting patiently

Social Quest uses real life situations and contextual images to present the professional, parent and student with ‘’jumping off’ points for discussing the “why” and “how” of social language usage.

The app utilizes a problem-solving quest theme in which students navigate various locations and earn “rewards” linked to social competencies.
