I know My Fire Safety Plan
Children with autism may be less able to help themselves than other children in a fire emergency. It is difficult to predict how a child with autism will behave in a stressful situation. Advance preparation is critical. This fire safety social story – a short, personalized story that breaks down the important points into easy-to-follow steps – is designed for high functioning children with autism ages 6 to 9. It can also be helpful to children with other developmental disabilities. It teaches children with autism spectrum disorder what to do if the smoke alarm sounds. Practice your fire safety plan with your children. Then read this story with them. The story is divided into sections. It can be read all at once or a little at a time depending on the requirements of the child.
