Accurate illustrations and simplified text will teach these individuals appropriate sexual practices that will lead to healthier and happier lives.
Social stories are short illustrated books that help teach individuals, affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), specific social “rules” or “norms” that are generally accepted in society.
