The books are used in lots of different ways; as social storybooks, as a preparation before an outing and as visual prompt to explain what comes next in a particular activity. The books also act as a great template for making homemade books or visual cards that can be focused on what is most important for your child.
The books can be a very effective social storybook tool for children with autism or any other communication disorder as well as being a great aid to young children who are learning English as a new language.
