More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Going shopping is a story and simple visual tool aimed towards children who have behaviors in stores caused by always wanting to pick out a toy or treat for themselves to buy.

**********

The app opens up to a simple visual tool that can be used to show and tell children before they enter a store if they do or dont get to pick out a toy or treat. There are also instructions for using the app and a social story that explains good shopping behavior.

The story focuses on fun things children can do in a store other than buying something for themselves. The story also explains the visual tool so the child knows when he/she does and does not get to pick something out for himself/herself.

Going into a store or shop can cause difficult tantrum behaviors for any child, and may be particularly difficult for children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or other special need. The desire to buy something is the most common cause of these behaviors.

Children with special needs often need more direct and visual instruction of what they can and cannot do or have. Teaching good shopping behaviors to any child may be easier and less stressful when visual supports, like social stories are used. This social story explains accurate information and ensures that your child will know what to expect when going into a store.

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.

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.
