Product Description
This social story is a great read for students who may need some support and help when preparing for their period. Periods can be very frightening for many young girls and I hope that this social story will help to ease some of those worries. This social story discusses the importance of a period and how they can deal with parts of a period - stomach cramps etc.

This social story also comes with another alternative story as requested - see below.

Many students with autism are visual learners and like to learn through seeing something in action. This book comes complete with matching, simple yet engaging graphics to help describe what is being said on the page.

Comes in col option only - no b/w availability, however you can print in grayscale.

Pages included in social story are;
♦ As I get older my body changes. Soon my period will start.
♦ Every girl will have a period and it’s going to be ok.
♦ When I am on my period, blood will come out of my vagina. This is ok.
♦ I will need to wear a tampon or pad, this will stop blood getting on my clothes.
♦ I should change my tampon or pad every few hours.
♦ To change my tampon or pad I should go to the toilets.
♦ I should put my used tampon or pad into the trash.
♦ Most girls have their period every 28 days. Sometimes it is before or after this.
♦ I can have an adult help me to keep track of when my next period is due.
♦ A period can last around 7 days.
♦ When I am on my period I might feel tired, bloated or hungry.
♦ I might also get stomach cramps and a bad back.
♦ I might feel angry or moody or upset too. This is ok.
♦ I can have a hot water bottle or tablets to help with my cramps.
♦ Having a period means I am growing up into a woman.
♦ If I get some blood on my underwear, this is ok I can just wash them.
♦ I can ask an adult to help me choose whether to use a tampon or pad.
♦ If my stomach hurts, I can take a rest or have a bath.

I recommend printing out each of the individual pages, laminating them and then binding them into a book so it will be easier for students to read - or be read to, as well as being stronger and longer lasting.
