social story for hitting and/or kicking?

Hello

Oh the joys.

DS has started whacking his LSA about 5 times a day. He is constantly in time out. He does it because she has interrupted him i.e. asked him to stop doing something he shouldn't and he thinks this is rude.

He is also constantly hitting a little girl who comes to play with him. He says she isn't sad because she doesn't cry.

Does anyone have a social story for hitting? I have googled but haven't found one I could go for.

TIA.

you may already have looked on this page

if not, it has lots of examples, though you may have to adapt them to suit your needs.

I iwearflairs.

I haven't a social story about hitting in the situation you mention but I have two or three you might be able to cobble together. Email me at karenthirlaway@yahoo.co.uk and I'll forward them.

I'm in and out most of the day so it might not be till tomorrow though.

Have emailed you with three stories. Let me know if they arrive OK, if not I will resend separately.
