This social story explores how to recognize the need for and use calming strategies. Most students with outbursts, attention deficits, and problem behaviors haven’t been trained to use the proper tools to deescalate their own behavior. This interactive story will help you begin the journey to finding good solutions to your student’s anger or anxiety. This story includes an 11 page book with interactive images for optimal engagement. These images center dialogue on the specific concepts being learned on each page. Three pages include problem solving and an opportunity to apply knowledge of the calming strategies. Additionally, I’ve created posters for reference of the calming strategies so they are readily available to students. The posters come in three separate sizes for use on the wall or at a desk.
