Social stories present information in a literal, ‘concrete’ way, which may improve a young person’s understanding of a situation.

They can help with sequencing (what comes next in a series of activities) and ‘executive functioning’ (planning and organising).     

By providing information about what might happen in a particular situation, and some guidelines for behaviour, you can increase structure in a person’s life and thereby reduce anxiety.
