Looking for social scripts? Then you'll love this free social script example about apologizing and learning how to say sorry. It's great for helping your kids (or students) with autism know what to say during specific social situations.

I'm not one to force my kids to make apologies when they don't understand why they are apologizing in the first place, but I do think it is still important to teach them how to say sorry in an appropriate manner. A manner in which they take responsibility for hurting someone else, whether it was intentional or not. That way when they do apologize for their actions or words on their own, they'll have the tools in place to do so appropriately.

So I created this free printable how to say sorry social scripts mini flip book as a way to practice different ways to say sorry and apologize.

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 knowing when to say sorry and may have even more difficulty expressing themselves when they do need to apologize. 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 choose an appropriate way to say sorry to others. 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.
