When Ellie is in the park with her father, she needs to go to the toilet. Ellie knows that public toilets are different to her toilet at home. This visual resource helps parents and carers teach girls and young women with autism and related conditions about how to use public toilets safely. It covers the subtleties of social etiquette including where to stand and look, as well as practicalities such as remembering to lock the cubicle door. With simple and effective illustrations throughout, the book is the perfect starting point for teaching independence when using public toilets.

Industry Reviews

These attractively illustrated books, with their clear, anatomically correct pictures and simple, unambiguous text, deal bravely with the aspects of sexuality that are challenging to teach and will facilitate discussion and learning. They will be a very welcome addition to the bookshelves of families who have an adolescent on the autism spectrum. -- Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex
This series is perfect for use in sex education classes. An excellent and very helpful choice for professionals working with people with ASD! -- Ioannis Voskopoulos-Labrini Ioannou, psychologist
