Students with autism often have difficulty understanding who, when, and where they can touch others. Teaching them is an important social behavior skill that, in order to be successful, needs to be done in a consistent, easy to understand manner over time.

Each four-picture story addresses specific behaviors related to self control when touching others. Your students learn why certain behaviors are wrong and learn the 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 and create 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 Touching. The lessons clearly define appropriate limits and behavior for:

  • kissing
  • hugging
  • holding hands
  • high-fiving
  • knuckle-touching
  • walking too closely
  • snuggling
  • tickling

Complete Program includes: 28-page lesson plan book; 32, 8½" x 11" story cards; 10 perforated sheets with large print sentences, question flash cards, and wrong/right cards; progress monitoring chart; vinyl folder. (2014)
