      Rating 71/2 out of 10 for this book. Written by an SLP; book gives parents, professionals & teachers great ideas for self-care/self-help social stories for children with autism/developmental challenges. Potty training & hand washing to menstruation & masterbation. However, would have liked more visual/PECS examples & I did not like the wording of some ideas (i.e. I should not touch blood/Blood is yucky & dirty). Describing things as yucky & dirty may disturb children with sensory issues.

    • SVOPD - Girl Power

      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

    Thank you to whoever created this! I had a preschool teacher try to tell my that my autistic son just "doesn't care" about other people. And she was a special ed preschool teacher too! I was SO angry! He CARES even if he isn't EXPRESSING it.

    I'm not afraid to tell people that my son is autistic. I want them to understand him like his dad and I do.

    Very true of my son. He often can't recognize people in photos and can't tell you names of relatives he's been around his whole life.
