Free Social Stories About Stealing for Kids 

Have you been looking for a social story that talks about taking things from others or respecting other people's belongings? Then look no further than these free printable social stories about stealing. Some require you to have a Teachers Pay Teachers account (which is free!) before you can download them.

I've rounded up some options for you to explore. That way you can find the best stealing social story for you and your child. Or you can simply use ideas from the different stories below to write your own custom story (free social story templates here to help).

Please note that just because a social story is listed here does not mean I endorse its content. After all, many social stories tend to be poorly written and/or teach autistic masking. Besides, I haven't read all of these stories word for word myself. So please read through the stories carefully before using them with your child.

Video Social Stories About Respecting Personal Belongings

Here are a couple of video social stories that explore and teach about concepts that are important to stealing: respecting other people's belongings. You can use these in teletherapy sessions, social skills groups, and/or classroom settings. Videos are always a great alternative to printing off a story.

Like the stories above, some of the wording in these videos aren't always great. But I wanted to make sure you had lots of different options for discussing and teaching about stealing and respecting personal property.

By the way, these two videos are actually video versions of two of the printable social stories about stealing from above so you'll be able to pair them together. Anyway, I hope you are able to find something from the list above that will be a good fit for your needs.
