A Healthy Hygiene, Puberty and Personal Curriculum For Young People With Autism

by Mary Wrobel

Item: 9781885477941

Format: softcover
Pages: 272

Puberty can be especially tough when young people have autism or other special needs. Through simple stories similar to Carol Gray’s Social Stories, author Mary Wrobel teaches caregivers exactly what to say and not say, and shows how you can create helpful stories of your own. Mary addresses hygiene, modesty, body growth and development, menstruation, touching, personal safety, and more. Young students can benefit from self-care skills such as using the toilet, brushing teeth, and washing hands. Parents and teachers should begin teaching these necessary skills as early as possible, even from ages 3-5. The ultimate goal is to maximise the child’s potential for independence and lifelong social success.
