Help prepare your student or child for winter break with this short and sweet social story for children with autism and other disabilities. Actually, this story is for any young child who benefits from being prepared for changes in their routine! You can download the free story for school, and to send a copy home with your students.

A visual schedule also prepares children for what to expect during their day. In addition, a visual communication book helps pre-verbal or non-speaking autistic children. It allows them to learn to effectively communicate with others using a visual modality. Both of these are ways of teaching children with autism using best practice strategies.
