Replace inappropriate, impulsive behaviors triggered by discomfort, anger, boredom, and other issues with lessons designed especially for students with autism.

Each four-picture story addresses specific behaviors related to impulsive responses to commonly encountered situations. Your students learn why certain behaviors are wrong and model a correct, alternative behavior as a replacement.

To reinforce learning, each lesson includes 10 Yes/No and 10 Wh- and How comprehension questions that will also improve expressive language skills. A simple role-play activity and easy to find props round out each lesson creating an exceptional learning environment for students with autism. The lessons are easy to adapt to individual, small group, or classroom therapy sessions.

Students with autism can unintentionally exhibit behaviors that are inappropriate. Help them understand and learn appropriate behaviors with Self-Control When Impulsive. The stories target:

  • yelling when you're angry
  • undressing when clothes are uncomfortable
  • inappropriate personal touching
  • touching store merchandise
  • running away from boredom
  • pouting
  • hitting out of anger
  • being too silly
