Social Story - Orthodontist

Postby sashasmom » Mon Jul 30, 2007 9:54 pm

I had to make 2 social stories tonight. One with the steps of getting braces on and one on oral hygiene with braces. If anyone is expecting to have their child go through this I'd be happy to email you the file.

I have it set up as 1/2 pages so when it prints you cut the page in 1/2 and can tape it to construction paper to make a book out of it.

Hi Iray -- the OP may not have read and responded since this is an older thread.

There is a 'behavior story' about the orthodontist here that you may be able to adapt for use with your child:

Here is a blog entry about writing social stories on your own:

http://blog.autismspectrumdirectory.com/2011/01/29/step-by-step-instructions-how-to-write-a-social-story/


You can use google images for pics and copy/paste these into a word document with the text.


Also, you might consider filming the assistant demostrating the brushing and care of braces with your child -- and making your own version of video modeling (might want to check youtube also for related videos).

If anyone has a social story on getting braces could you please send it to me? My 14 year old just got braces today and has pulled them off already. Now he is sad as he liked them.

I would love a copy!
I was just told my 10 yr old needs braces.
Very apprehensive because just getting his teeth cleaned is a challenge.
Thank you so much!
