For a child with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), even everyday activities like brushing your teeth, washing your hands or visiting the doctor can cause anxiety and stress because of the sensory, cognitive and communication impairments they experience.

This is an entertaining and educational social/life skills storybook that will help children with ASDs to understand the importance of taking care of their bodies. Fully illustrated with colour photographs, it sets out fun, simple steps that explain what caring for yourself actually involves - how you can do it, where it is done and why it is important. At the end of each story is a handy 'Pause for Thought' page for parents which offers tips and strategies to help a child with each activity.

This charming book will be much loved by children with ASD and will enable them and their parents to cope with the daily activities that can be such a challenge.

"This is a resource for young children that is certain to stand the practical tests of time and application! Simple and complete, parents and professionals will find themselves reaching for it time and again." Carol Gray, author and social skills pioneer.

Also available in hardback.
