About the Free Printable Social Story

This social story is designed to help you explain autism to your autistic child to help make it easier to tell your child that they're autistic.

It explains what autism is and what being autistic means.

It also discusses things like stimming, sensory processing differences, special interests, the positives of being autistic, and so much more.

There is even a page for your child to list their special interests.

The story is written positively and designed to help your child feel empowered! No doom and gloom here. Just all positive vibes for having a unique brain that sees the world differently.

And a special thank you to the autistic adults who I consulted during the writing and creation of this social story. Your insight and feedback was greatly appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to help make this social story as awesome as it is.

I highly suggest laminating the social story for durability. You can use binder rings to keep the social story together or store it in a binder. As an alternative to laminating, you could use sheet protectors in a binder. Or if you find yourself printing off lots of social stories, then this binding machine is a lifesaver!
