This social story - I Am Graduating - addresses the concept of graduating from high school. There is a lot that students have to process around graduating, and this social story can serve as a resource for them.
WHAT DOES IT COVER?
Describing and celebrating the end of high school and everything they accomplished
Their choices to celebrate: do they want to go to the high school ceremony with their peers?, have a small in class ceremony?, do something at home, or do something else?
How they can keep in touch with their friends and teachers if they miss them
Listing out their worries – if they have any
Listing out what they’re excited for
Reminder that their feelings are valid and it’s a transitioning time
Reminder that everyone is excited for them and for life after high school
Who needs another task to add to their workload? Not you! It can take a lot of extra time to have to create your own social story every time you need one for your student, but we take out the guesswork and save you a lot of time with this social story. And if you need to make adjustment to this social story, you totally can! It's EDITABLE!
The social stories from Autism Grown Up specifically focus on the learner experience, and how they can meet their goals.

EDITABLE TO INDIVIDUALIZE
We know that it can be impossible to find a one size fits all strategy, so this social story is editable, so you can customize it (add your learner's name, change a picture, and the why).
Print and bind into a book or just read it digitally on any of your devices.
MEETS SOCIAL STORY RESEARCH-BASED CRITERIA
Written from student perspective using positive language (what do we want the learner to feel empowered to do?!) - moving away from what we see as the challenging behavior.
This employs a strengths-based approach as well, meaning that we center on how a resource like this can support the learning instead of honing in what they are doing wrong
ACROSS SUPPORT NEEDS
Social stories can be used for learners across the spectrum and support needs because our social stories can be differentiated. This social story can be used for learners with varying reading levels (emergent and conventional). We use a combination of real photos and shorter sentences – which also help older students who read at grade level. Depending on the individual, when they are in an escalated state, it’s less pressure to process clear, simple input.
