Be Safe: Public and Private Places Social Story
This resource, part of the Be Safe resource collection, is a social story explaining the difference between public and private places, as well as behaviors that are okay in each setting.
There are some things I can do in front of people and some things that I should do by myself.
These are called “public” or “private” behaviors.
Public behaviors are things I can do in a place where other people may be around.
Public behaviors are things like eating lunch, talking to a friend, or giving a friend a hug.
Private behaviors are things I do when I’m alone in a private place.
Private behaviors are things like adjusting my underwear or touching my private parts.
