NO THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!
I apologize if this is offensive to anyone. . .
Those of you who work with Boys in the secondary grades with ASD and Learning Disabilities LOVE this topic and many times lack the social maturity to be appropriate and sensitive to others.
This topic is entertaining and funny for just about every child and teenager (and many adults). There usually comes a time when adolescents recognize when this topic is more appropriate or more accepted to talk about and/or joke about than others. For students with learning disabilities, this social maturity can be very delayed. I created this lesson for a specific group of boys who find great enjoyment out of discussing “farting”, demonstrating the action and making jokes about “farting”. Each classroom like this has it’s own unique needs with regards to teaching social skills and social appropriateness. Fortunately (with a sarcastic grin), I get to talk about. . . . Farting.
