Any parent will tell you that getting their child to wash their hands or brush their teeth can be a difficult thing. This can be especially true if their child has an Autism spectrum disorder. To help kids understand the importance of these activities Christy Gast and Jane Krug have developed a great book called "Caring for Myself"
"Caring for Myself" is divided into 5 activities: washing hands, getting a haircut, brushing teeth, taking a bath and going to the doctor. Each section starts with a "Who: What: Where: When: How: and Why:" summary of the activity followed by clear, concise descriptions and photos of each step of the activity. At the end of each section the authors have provided lists of things to consider for parents.
