Product Description

As girls approach adolescence, their bodies start to change. When a young girl starts menstruation, it can be difficult for her to understand what changes are occurring in her body and how to care for them. Teaching an adolescent girl with Autism how to cope with this important life experience can be challenging for parents and educators.

The Special Learning Becoming a Woman: Starting My Period Social Story Set helps to break down this complex subject to help an adolescent girl with Autism begin to understand what is happening to her body and why during this time. Through simplified text and accurate illustrations, she will learn how to care for herself and her body.

Social stories are short illustrated books that help teach individuals, affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special needs, the specific social "rules" or "norms" that are generally accepted in society. Each set is a self-contained comprehensive teaching solution that comes with an integrated set of tools, including a teaching guide. These products are designed to work in conjunction with each other to teach a student the foundational social skills necessary for building success and independence.


  • Simplified text and realistic illustrations facilitate easier understanding
  • Breaks down a difficult subject matter and makes teaching easier for parents
  • Defines key terms associated with puberty and menstruation in easy-to-understand language


The Special Learning Social Story Set includes:

  • Full page illustrated social story coded by skill(s) and age
