Helping children stop hitting out in angry outbursts


The goal of this bumper resource pack, is to help children understand that hands are used for acts of kindness – not for hurting others. This has been achieved by creating a social story – with images of people, so that they can see the facial expressions of others. Social stories are a great way of describing specific situations and explaining other people’s perspectives.  Thereafter, it builds on this knowledge – through activities and visual aids that can be applied in real-life situations.
