Holiday Deployment

As we enter into the "Holiday Season," some of us are facing dealing with a deployed loved one. This can be a hard time for our families. It can be especially difficult for families who children that may not understand why their mommy or daddy can't come home for the holidays. This social story was created to help children understand deployment during the holidays. 

Thanks for all you do as a military family & Happy Holidays!!

Dealing with deployment and a child who has special needs

If you are a military family, you know that the possibility of a deployment is always there. This is always a tough thought! It may be even more difficult trying to explain this to a child, especially if they have special needs. Below are two different versions of social stories to help explain what a deployment is and how to deal with it. There are both a booklet version and a one page version of these stories. These options are available so you can choose which option you think will be best for your families. It is my sincerest hope that they will be of help to your families as you deal with going through a deployment. Please note that there are also book versions of these social stories available for you to download if you think they will better serve your kiddo. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for these versions. I wish your family a smooth deployment and safe return!!
