Looking for social scripts? Then you'll love this free social script example about what to say when you feel angry or frustrated. It's great for helping your kids (or students) with autism know what to say during specific social situations.

I still recall the first time J ever said the sentence "I am feeling frustrated." It absolutely shocked me to hear those words coming from his mouth.

Then last year, during first grade, his wonderful teacher and EA were able to get him to ask to take a break regularly. So, at home, I frequently heard him say that he would need a body break. It was such amazing progress!

However, from time to time, he still has trouble expressing his frustration and anger appropriately. He sometimes hits, especially if his brother K has been egging him on. So we have been trying to get J to express himself more concretely using this free printable frustration and anger social speech scripts. It's a handy little booklet to keep on hand at all times!

It's small in size, so it can fit in the palm of your hand or be tossed in a bag for on the go. Or you could even clip it to your child's belt loops so that it is handy at all times.

Kids with hyperlexia and autism often have trouble expressing themselves when they are upset or frustrated. Scripts, like these, can help them learn what to say and what not to say. That's why I have created these mini social scripts flip books! They're like text only mini social stories to take on the go!

The scripts are just there to help your kid express themselves when they are feeling overwhelming, impatient, angry, or frustrated. Use these scripts ahead of time to practice and role play so that they will learn to express themselves when the time is right. With time, you can hopefully phase the scripts out.

To assemble this mini flip book, simply download, print, and cut along the black lines. Blank cards have been included so that you can write your own speech scripts. You might also want to laminate the cards for durability. Then hole punch the cards and put the book together using a a binder ring.

  1. I can't even get the resource, I keep having to sign up for emails (which I've done many times now). Is the 'free resource' title just click bait?

    1. No it's not click bait. I've been having issues with the service that sends my free printables, unfortunately, and I am currently in the process of redoing all of them. It's a lot of work and may take me a few more days to get it all fixed. I'm trying my best to sort it all out, but I'm only one person with only so much time. Please bare with me as I try to get it all fixed up!

  2. I'm also having a problem finding this resource. I have also tried finding it under the links at the top of the page. This sounds like a resource we need right now.

  3. It is really frustrating that I am asked to sign up for emails again every time I receive an email with supposedly free printables. I don't need to sign up multiple times. My email is already over-inundated with information.

    1. The service I use has no way to differentiate who is already on the list and who isn't and is designed to email the printable directly to you. Sometimes it ends up in spam though...And, FYI, you won't be subscribed more than once if you keep using the same email address.

      Having said all that, I've been having issues with the service that sends my free printables, unfortunately, and I am currently in the process of redoing all of them. It's a lot of work and may take me a few more days to get it all fixed. I'm trying my best to sort it all out, but I'm only one person with only so much time. Please bare with me as I try to get it all fixed up!

  4. It is really frustrating to find multiple links on this page none of which take you to a "free" download.

    1. You just need to click the large pink image that says "download here" and then it emails the printable directly to you.

      As I mentioned above though, I've been having issues with the service that sends my free printables, unfortunately, and I am currently in the process of redoing all of them. It's a lot of work and may take me a few more days to get it all fixed. I'm trying my best to sort it all out, but I'm only one person with only so much time.
