Tantrums Don’t Help Me Fix a Problem (Social Story)

Tantrums Don’t Help Me Fix a Problem is a social story created by TAP. This particular social story is written to help children understand why tantrums will not fix their problem. It also helps the child with positive ways to deal with their emotions, such as using their words, instead of throwing objects. Social stories can be customized to any child for any topic —  JUST ASK!

This social story can be found on-line at http://www.speakingofspeech.com under “materials exchange” and then “social pragmatics”. On the website, it’s listed under “Tantrums Don’t Fix My Social Communication Problems” and there’s separate links to each of the pages in the book. If you can stop by the resource room, we’d be happy to make it for you (you should call ahead so we can have it ready for you when you come in).
