many children, Easy Social Stories can make all the difference between
an enjoyable new experience and an emotional nightmare for everyone.
Easy Social Stories are meant to help prepare children for new situations
- like the first day of school, going to the Doctor or even getting
a haircut - by letting kids know what to expect, in a way they can
understand. Stories of this kind have helped children with Autism,
Aspergers, ADD, ADHD and other special needs - but they are also
great for any child, about to have a new experience, like going
to the beach, taking an airplane ride or going to the dentist.
have begun a collection of these stories for my eldest daughter,
who has autism symptoms. Her teacher suggested I make them for her,
to help her understand what will happen at the holiday party or
to help her understand why it's important to cut her fingernails.
I have compiled my efforts here,
in the hopes that others will benefit from them, too.
printable stories are electronic - they are downloaded or emailed
to you in a .PDF format. You can view them on most handheld devices
(like smart phones, iPad, Nook & Kindle) or you can print them
for school and home - again and again, if you need to. They have
been purposely designed to be inexpensive, so that you and your
child can benefit from as many of our Easy Social Stories as needed.
Personalized stories can be made for you and your child (for an
additional fee or in collaboration to add to our catalog). You can
even supply photographs and text, if needed. Please email
me if you would like more information about custom stories.
addition to Easy Social Stories,
you will find a free tutorial, written
to get kids on-line, and some terrific site suggestions to help
kids learn to read - my kids just love these sites. You'll also
find my own e-book that talks about my
journey with autism and some terrific tricks that I have learned
to help me better cope with the demands of my special child - a
gift to you, so you can get to know me a bit and so I can share
some tips I have learned along the way. You'll even find a collection
of free coloring pages you can share
with your students and families; holiday stuff I made for my kids
that your kids might like, also.

helpful in my journey. Herbs for Kids
is a new section we have added, which lists all-natural herbal products
that I use with my kids for a variety of issues. These are great
for all kids - the more we keep chemicals out of our children, the
better their own bodies can work.

see a lot of Autism Awareness products out there, but I thought
we could use some with holiday themes (they are great for halloween
trick or treating or going to a parade or party), so I made
some with Zazzle. I also made some kind, all purpose Autism
Awareness shirts - and the hats, seem like we could put a phone
number on the back to help our kids who wander find their way
back to us easily. I've put all my ideas together in this Zazzle
store. Please check it out and feel free to send
