School Welcome Story, Written by Barbara Newman, Published by All Belong
Some children need a chance to visit their new classroom before school starts. They need to know the routine, names of teachers, where and how to line up, what to do with a backpack, and many more details. While actually visiting the new room can be helpful, this story allows you to write a personalized description of the new classroom and then gives the child a chance to practice it many times by reading about the new room. This technique is helpful for younger children as well as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and those with limited language skills. After purchasing the School Welcome Story, the material is completely available on the website for your continued use and individualization.
