Free Social Story When Can I Touch Myself ( Girls 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 book is available in a girls and boys version. The story is the same, but one story is for the boy and one story is appropriate for the girl.

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.

    Very nicely explained about public and private places, and appropriate activities done in these places. Simple clear visuals. I loved the use of Infographics! It makes it easier to read and understand.

    We used this with a girl in Grade 1 who was having issues toughing herself at school. I sent the book home and her family read the book with her, and she has not had any issues at school since.

    This social story is great and can be modified to meet the needs of your students. This will be a useful way to help curb unexpected habits of students in an age appropriate way.
