Social Stories are used with great success for almost all children and some adults on the Autism Spectrum. These are a great way to help your child prepare for their trip and to have some understanding of what the process is and what comes next during each step of their trip.
Social Stories help with changes in routine. The idea is to have a visual that you and your child can review before your trip to prepare for the upcoming changes in routine. A trip can create a lot of uncertainty for someone on the Autism Spectrum. This visual story will help walk your children through the expected changes while away on vacation.
Though not every unexpected change can be reviewed, the Social Story will help prepare your child for the flight expectations, the cruise or resort expectations, activities they may participate in and when they can expect to return to their usual routine.
Impact Vacations will create customs Social Stories for your family that you can review with your child and use as a step by step for their trip. We can create them for cruises, tours and resorts stay, as well as Disney trips and more.
