Premade social stories and an easy platform for creating your own stories make working with social stories relatively easy -- but full use comes at a price. The free version provides a nice, straightforward opportunity to read one social story and create two. The free app has good potential but can be frustrating because much of the content is visible yet unavailable. Unfortunately, information about what's included in the free version and what the purchases options are aren't very transparent. Similarly, neither version has much how-to support: There are no directions or suggestions about making your own stories and few directions to help with navigation or options for easy movement within the app. Parents may want to experiment with the free content and determine whether it's worth the full price.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
