S__’s good friend M__ has moved away and now the two communicate via Skype.  Here’s a social story I wrote for my Skype-using, Friend-missing autistic son:

When I miss M__ I can always reach him on Skype.
I just say, Hey, Mama, can I chat with my friend?
Mama gets the computer set up and I see M__ on the screen.
She reminds me to speak loudly and to give him my eyes.
Sometimes I feel shy and don’t know what to say.
She cues me to ask my friend how he’s doing
or what the weather is like in NYC.
I can tell M__ what the weather’s like in Cali or
show him my new toy car.
After awhile, I tell my friend  goodbye and that I miss him.
He needs to take his bath and go to sleep.
It’s three hours later in New York.
