Do you have 'a runner' or a 'parking lot darter' ? If you do, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Before you even have a chance to STOP them, they are running down the street. You start to panic.
Nobody knows exactly what makes children 'run', but they do, and they are FAST! Use this social story to help explain and visually teach your child that running just isn't safe. It explains that running into the street can be dangerous, or you can run and get lost. That there are places, like the park, that it's okay to run.
This book has the added benefit of PECS Sentence Strips. This provides the additional benefit of attaching a picture to every word in the story. Because children with autism think in pictures, they also learn in pictures.
