Teaching students with special needs about stranger danger is an important way to help them stay safe in a variety of situations. The social stories in this lesson will help you address this significant topic with your students.

Social Stories and Stranger Danger

As a teacher who works with students with special needs, you know that one of your jobs is to teach them to navigate stressful and even potentially dangerous social situations. Social stories offer explicit, scripted language that can guide your students through difficult scenarios by teaching vocabulary, strategies and concepts they can repeat to themselves again and again until internalized. This lesson offers social stories for teaching your students about stranger danger.

Stranger Danger Outside

I like to go places with my family and my friends! I like to go places outside. Some of my favorite places are the park and the beach. There is a park near my house. I also like to go for walks outside. When I am outside, I often stay close to my family, but sometimes I play a little bit further away from them. I can do that because I am getting older and I know how to do so many things all by myself!
