Many of you found Autism Little Learners due to the free COVID social stories that I shared. We sure have been through a lot together since the spring of 2020! As much as I’d like to retire these stories, and put them in a time capsule, I’m afraid we will be needing them again for the 2021-2022 school year. I will continue to write new stories as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds in the months ahead. Please check back often, and let other educators and parents know about the free Autism Little Learners library with social stories for COVID. I want to serve as many people as possible with these stories!

Social stories are an evidence-based intervention for individuals with autism. This means that research shows that social stories work! Carol Gray developed “social stories” in 1990. Her work as a pioneer in the field of autism is highly respected. To read more, learn about her resources, or sign up for a training, click here.

This list includes social stories that are useful in the home setting. For the full list of all of the Autism Little Learners social stories, click here.
