Social stories are an important type of visual support often used with children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or other special need. This social stories found in this app use simple text and descriptive pictures to explain the why and how of different social skills.
Social interactions may be especially difficult for children with an autism spectrum disorder, adhd, or other social delay. Many children, especially those diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome and other special need, often fail to pick up on social cues, making learning a social skill especially difficult. Social stories may increase awareness and maintenance of social skills.
Social stories were first defined by Carol Gray in 1991 and are commonly used to break down a task or social situation into small and easy to understand steps, often accompanied by descriptive pictures. Social stories are incredibly easy to implement and are used by many professionals for a wide range of behaviors.

Ratings and Reviews
Any bad review were’s out there for this app you’re probably not a special-needs person or have a special-needs person in your life you probably are just a typical person with typical people and downloaded this app to experiment with it that’s why you don’t have a very good review even if you do have an artistic person in your life and your back and your belly reviewing it then you must not have used it very much I’ve only created one social story and I know that this is awesome I recommend this for a lot of people especially kids I got this for my brothers because they mean the world to me and they’re both autistic so I thought this was perfect I always find my iPod touch every day so this is very convenient please get the app if you haven’t already🤩😍
The Social Story App is easy to use to create custom social stories. The structure is clear. Adding photos from the iPad allows teachers to personalize the specific story. It would be great if we could print custom stories or send them as a file to another teacher. I also wish they filled the screen when played. But this app has encouraged me to write multiple stories and it is definitely user friendly! The library of written stories is very helpful. There is a good selection of familiar needs. Thank you!
Fantastic functionality, super easy!
I never review apps. I know I should, but I don’t. This app is an exception. It is superb! Very, very easy to use. There’s a free version that you can download, and you can make a few custom social stories with it. And there are a couple of tiers of paid versions that allow more stories in your library and various other nice features. Get the free version to try it out. If you have a non-conversant or communication-challenged loved one, I bet you’ll end up buying the full version and using it all the time. So awesome!!
