Like all social stories I write, full color photographs of real children are used instead of clipart. In my experience, full color photos are more relatable to autistic children, like my son, than clipart. Diverse children are included as much as possible so that every child feels represented. Written scripts are also given where needed to help provide the child with the language they need to be successful in the given social scenario.

I am an OT and have been using this story with many of my children. I think sometimes with older kids we think they're too old for social stories, but a lot of my kids (7-11) have really connected with the concepts in this story.
Reading the 'Angry" story provided a context for talking about angry feelings with my client. We talked about what makes her feel angry, how to calm down and how to express anger in a manner that does not involve property destruction or harming a family member. So far, it's working!
