Here is an example of a more specific social story that you can write for your child using your own pictures and information: http://www.machkovich.com/Cory/AutismRecovery/SocialStories/BacktoSchool.pdf

In order to make the social story, you can arrange to visit your child's teacher and classroom before school begins to introduce your child and take some photos. If you are unable to arrange this type of visit, you can visit the school building and possibly the playground to get your child familiar with the environment and take photos of these. Also, you may be able to find pictures of the teacher, school building, or classroom on the school's website that you can use to make a social story.
