As some of you are aware dd sometimes put things from the floor in her mouth (majority of the time it is edible, but still!). I am so keen to try and stop this as it only magnifies her sn even more. I mean social skills are hard enough for her as it is.
I am keen to write a story explainign why she shouldn't do it but haven't a clue where to start.
Please help this social story virgin

BH,have you a copy of 'Wash your hands!' (I think it's this in English-we have it in Welsh) by Tony Ross? (Anderson Press Ltd.) One of the series about a little princess.

It covers issues like this and has been very useful in our house. Might save you the work?!

Oh Moondog, need to find it. Do they have a book on picking things off of the floor then. the washing hands after the toilet is another one my little madam could do with

It's all to do with things being dirty,so leads very usefully into discussions about why eating off the floor isn't such a great idea,as well as lots of useful stuff about washing hands after going to the loo. It really has been helpful in our house. There is a whole series of the (other topics include feeling scared about the first night away from home,dealing with the birth of a sibling,losing milk teeth,not wanting to slepp and so on.)
We love 'em!
