Free Social Story What Happens When My Parents Get Divorced This Package Includes : 12 pages


Divorce can be a difficult time for the family, for both the parents and the children. Explaining to children who have a developmental delay what will happen when there is a divorce in the family can be difficult. I have put this social story together in very simple words and pictures to explain what will transpire when there is divorce.

Some of the concepts covered are parents will live in different households. Both parents still love me and it is okay to feel sad sometimes.

Use the social story to ask and answer questions the child may have, or to discuss feelings.

Hope this books helps you.

    This was the perfect story to open up further discussion for an 8 year old with ASD.

    Simple and easy to understand story for my ASD son. Although I don't think he quite understands just yet I will refer to this story again as needed.

    I just wish there was one on "separation" and not strictly divorce.

    I'm a therapist and I used this social story with a 5 year old child whose parents recently divorced. It explains what kids go through during a divorce (moving homes, missing one parent, etc) and concludes by reminding the child that their parents will always love them. A simple, yet effective social story for young children.
