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

The social story walks through:
  • Why pinching others 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 pinching others
  • 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.
  • Provide the "Why" the physically aggressive behavior is not okay and some of the harmful natural consequences

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.
