Free Social Story When Can I Touch Myself ( Boys Version( : This Package Includes : 13 pages


Puberty can be a difficult time for teens and parents. Parents find the time challenging as they have to explain the changes that are taking place,  appropriate social skills and, help the teen cope with changes happening in their body. As part of my puberty section, I am trying to break down some of the issues that are relevant to teens with Autism and developmental disabilities.

I had to explain to my own son Niam, when it was appropriate ( private places ) and inappropriate ( public places) to touch themselves. I found myself often prompting Niam verbally and reinforcing when he forgot. I wrote this social story for him, but would like to share it with all of you. I chose the bedroom as a private place rather than a bathroom, as bathroom can be found at friends homes, restaurants , shopping centres. This is something important to keep in mind when teaching what rooms are private. 

Hope this books helps you.

This free social story can also be used as part of a reading program or behaviour management program.  Use the book to talk, ask questions and answer questions.

 This is a great ABA Resource, school education program, social story and free printable worksheet for your students as part of a home living program, parental resources and school program to reinforce important skills for children with Autism and other developmental disabilities.

 The resource can be laminated for longevity and used in the classroom or at home to help your child learn an essential life skill.

 Check out our other great social stories for teachers and students. We have many social stories you can download for your student.

 From our family to yours, we encourage learning and hope you enjoy these materials. I want to see all of our children reach their best potential.

    Simple, but age appropriate

    I like how this story is simple and easy to read, but the subject isn't portrayed as too childish.

    Excellent social story for the male learner beginning to experience puberty. The story is specific, but not graphic, and provides a clear message about what is socially expected behavior.
