"Ben and His Helmet" - a series of 5 fiction books

The Ben and His Helmet series are helping children on the Autistic Spectrum learn how to cope with the characteristics of Asperger's Syndrome and to self-manage their behaviour. Children are using these social stories as a reference as they look for assistance in navigating:-
- School Routines
- Social Skills
- Facial Expressions
- Literal Meanings
- Sensory Issues
- Transition and Change

Children with Asperger's Syndrome make a connection to Ben - his character becomes familiar and safe. The use of repetitious text provides predictability and confidence to struggling readers. Each instalment or book offers a chance to consolidate the ASD child's progress towards self-management, while at the same time reinforcing desired classroom practice and social behaviour.
