Use this editable social story to support students and individuals to prevent hitting others.

The social story walks through:
  • Why hitting is harmful for both the individual and others
  • Acknowledging the individual's strong and big emotions
  • Building self-awareness of feelings (which are difficult for Autistic and neurodivergent students!)
  • How they can share what they need/want to do in the moment
  • Providing a visual choice board of what to do next instead of hitting
  • How this choice can be more helpful in the long run for them to share what they need, whether it is related to sensory, self-regulation, etc.

Individuals can refer to this social story booklet for information, continued choices, reminders, and as a reference point. Written from the perspective of the individual, centered on their experience, and supports understanding.
