Gentle Hands is a social story created for children who have difficulty keeping their hands safe with others. Using straightforward language and engaging visuals, it walks through common situations where hands may hit, grab or pinch if overstimulated or lacking social awareness. In a positive narrative tone, Gentle Hands models appropriate hand behaviors like keeping relaxed hands by your side, asking before touching items that aren’t yours, clapping joyfully but not forcefully, and similar appropriate conduct. The story aims to motivate self-regulation and understanding social cues through short behavioral examples suited for pattern-based learning needs.
