The Social Story

Social Story Sample - Helping with Headaches at Elementary School-2-1

One Family’s Effort to Make School Easier for their Young Child with CVS

“Helping … with Headaches at School” is something that my wife, Michele, put together for our daughter. It is a small book she made to explain what happens if an episode were to begin at school. It comforted and reassured our daughter that there is a plan in place and all is well. As stress is often a trigger for CVS, this extra comfort of knowing and understanding the plan, helps ease that stress for the new young students. The staff liked it a lot, but it really as much as anything is written for the student, written at their social/reading level, not that of the staff. We hope that other families might find this helpful.
