Using carefully designed lesson plans, this practical curriculum is a great tool for teachers, therapists, and parents who work with children with ASD. This book enables the instructor to teach personal hygiene in a tactful non-judgemental way. It also aids the students in understanding the unwritten "social rules" leading to success in social situations. Each lesson is accompanied by time saving material with really fun closing activities. What child wouldn't have fun with unusual personal trivia, silly scavenger hunts, and entertaining movie clips? Additional expert references and on-line resources are an added bonus. This curriculum is a teacher-student friendly guide easily adaptabe for various age groups and abilities. I recommend adding it to your "must have" list.

This is an great resource to help therapists, teachers, and parents deal with the hygiene issues that children on the autism spectrum often have trouble addressing. It is easy to follow with great activities that pull humor into an often embarassing subject. Each chapter includes lesson plans with the amount of time each activity takes to help in planning. Chapters also include a list of instructional materials and supports as well as wrap up questions at the end of each chapter. Activities are well thought out and are easy to follow. This is a great resource for OTs in the school system to share with teachers and parents!
