    Need social story rec

    I’m looking for a social story recommendation on friendship for a 10-year-old boy, specifically one that might focus on losing a friend. He has become fixated on getting back in touch with a friend he hasn’t seen for three years, and we even moved to a different state. Honestly, they never even had a play date together and I doubt the kid will even remember him. This is just a manifestation of his disability along with some anxiety he’s experiencing due to another upcoming move for us. I thought maybe a social story on the ebb and flow of friendship, that friendships come and go, might be helpful.

    If you search the internet for "social story formula," you can use the tips to create your own. I do not know of a ready-made social story for this scenario, but I think your own thoughts are excellent.

    If it is any comfort, we encounter this quite often. Whether a child moves away from my children geographically or simply through maturation, we try to focus with gratitude on the moments and people they enjoyed. We try to be ready for similar moments and people who will come into their lives. You might add a future component to your social story, so he can be looking forward.
