Fully illustrated with colour photographs, it sets out fun, simple steps that explain what caring for yourself actually involves - how you can do it, where it is done and why it is important. At the end of each story is a handy 'Pause for Thought' page for parents which offers tips and strategies to help a child with each activity. This charming book will be much loved by children with ASD and will enable them and their parents to cope with the daily activities that can be such a challenge.
