Riding the School Bus Social Story
When I go to school, I will ride on the school bus.
The bus will stop to pick up other people too.
When people sit down, the bus will start moving again.
When the bus gets to a red light or stop sign, it will stop again.
When the light turns green and the bus is safe to go, it will start moving again.
Sometimes it can be noisy on the bus.
If it is too loud, I can put on headphones to protect my ears.
If I feel mad, worried, or upset, I can practice being calm.
I can use my phone or iPad to stay calm.
I can take deep breaths and think about things that make me happy.
I can talk to other people on the bus.
When it is my turn, I will take my things and get off of the bus.
