- how to apply hygiene napkins
- how to change them
- how to discard them
- how to clean up afterwards
Format: (4 x 6) laminated color cards
They are labeled by step, and include a reminder to wash hands after touching sanitary napkins.
*Although they include words, the photos used in this sequence are ideal for non-verbal youth.
