Everybody Makes Mistakes
Everybody makes mistakes; grown-ups, children, and dinosaurs too. It’s okay, we all do. This is a social narrative designed for young children who struggle with perfectionism and OCD type behaviors. The story is especially useful for children with high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The story normalizes making mistakes and provides a strategy for coping with the resulting anxiety and frustration. The story starts with the character Rex who makes mistakes and then goes on to explain how kids and even adults make mistakes, and that’s okay. Painful emotions are named and normalized in this sweet social story.
