Last week, the autism teachers in my school were approached by our Assistant Principal and told that our school would be participating in it's FIRST EVER (at least since I have been here) lockdown drill. This is the kind of drill that you typically get no warning for since the police want to see how your school reacts in the moment. Basically, the school announces a lockdown over the intercom, and everyone is supposed to act as though an intruder is in the building. With all the current issues with school shootings, etc. I am surprised we have never done this type of drill before...but I am glad we are at least starting them now. How do you prepare your students for a lockdown drill? I really have no idea. However, I figured I would make a brief social story explaining the drill as well as practice the drill a few times.
