This curriculum developed for students with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, learning and developmental disabilities is designed to help them understand how others perceive their appearance and the social implications of neglecting personal hygiene.
Simple factual information is accompanied by humorous cartoons that emphasize how others view someone with poor hygiene. Quizzes and activity pages provide numerous opportunities for repetition and reinforcement of the key points. Several social stories are also provided, along with a set of worksheets that help students set up a daily schedule to allow time for completing necessary hygiene tasks.
