Helping the Autism Community


I am so happy to say that the children’s preparation book, “It’s Time For Your Checkup What to expect when going to a doctor visit” has been added to Autism Speaks resource library under books for children.

This is a great tool to help children with special needs. It is an amazing social story with photographs and simple, child friendly language explaining what they will experience to help decrease anxiety and give them a sense of control. It offers strategies for comfort positions, coping and distraction techniques during the exam, vaccinations and blood test.

Thanks so much for spreading the word so that families, teachers, therapists and medical personnel can use this resource for kids of all developments.
