Teaching how to use sanitary napkins for menstruation can be a confusing task, particularly for visually-inclined students with special needs such as developmental delays, learning disabilities, or autism.
Menstrual Hygiene Product Use : Sequencing Cards
by Stephanie Mitelman, M.A., CSE, AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator
Using teaching principles that have been proven to be effective for youth on the autism spectrum (and other special needs), these cards demonstrate, picture by picture the sequence of:
- 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.
