For the parents of child on the spectrum in Elementary school and middle school, this book really helped us to help our son understand how people around him think and what he should or should not do in certain situations. It has been a great asset too to some of his teachers as well. It comes with a disc also that helps explain how to use the book with our child. In all actuality, it could be used for any child, but was especially helpful for us when trying to teach our son social cues, making friends and how to keep them.

One of my purchases this spring was The New Social Story Book because I wanted some ''home'' curriculum of social stories. After reading reviews I settled on this book and I''m quite satisfied. I think a lot of the social story books that I had seen in the past were targeting pre-school to 1st grade kids as well as much lower functioning kids. Carol Gray''s book is most definitely targeting late elementary to middle school higher functioning kids. The language is mature and straight forward, but still appealing to a child.

We''ve been using the book for four months now and I''m very pleased. My son is fine with reading the stories together and discussing them and he''s liked several of the ''activities''. We started with the intro, but then skipped around to the areas that he was having the most immediate need. The book tackles many critical areas for kids on the spectrum such as change, mistakes, bullying, school, as well as basic social skills areas such as greetings and parties. There''s also a large section dealing with feelings, emotions, and feeling comfortable. I really like her ''Fort Able'' concept.

After hitting some ''key stories'' for him, I went back to the beginning and have been doing most of the pertinent stories in order (The Fort Able section in full) and occasionally skipping some stories that aren''t too applicable or he''s pretty much beyond.

The front section of the book contains a lot of great information for the parent or therapist who wants to learn about social story construction and usage.

There''s a CD that includes pdf and word copies of the book to print out if desired for group activity or printing some of the activity sheets to fill out.

This book is an excellent resource. My plan is to continue using the book for the remainder of the summer and hit the ''school'' section in full the week before school starts back up. And absolutely, this book is a great resource for neurotypical children as well! Everyone can benefit from thinking about and discussing social stories, even me:)

This is NOT a very long book about therories, ideas and opinions. This is a tool. It teaches you how to make stories that help your child navigate life (about 40 pages or so). The rest of the book is full of wonderful stories that help your child understand the world in which they live and how to relate to it. My 7yo with autism likes the stories, my 13yo borderline MR with autism does not like it... but in general she never wants me to talk to her or explain things to her. She tantrums often. I am going to have to find a way to make it worth her while to listen.

Very good book for work with children with a variety of social needs. My only criticism, is that some of the stories are kind of wordy, while also being a be short. However it says you can omit or add words in order to make it more appropriate. I would have liked to have more stories about stress or anxiety. Moreover, I really like the stories that are linked to little activities and that talk about change and Fort Able. They are cute little stories for kids.
