Downloadable Handout for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder—High Functioning
Behavior challenge—fear of trying new things or changing routines

The unique Kimochis® characters and feelings provide parents a playful way to help their child with autism spectrum or other social-cognitive disorders learn how to recognize and manage emotions, use self-regulation skills, and develop positive relationships. The downloadable Character Handouts are focused on a typical behavioral challenge that parents often face with their child. The activities and suggestions in the Character Handouts are appropriate for children who have average language skills and cognitive functioning.

Children with autism spectrum disorder can become very anxious, scared and uncomfortable when asked to try something new or do an activity that is unfamiliar or out of the regular routine. In this seven page handout, parents and caregivers get concrete tools, activities and scripts for using the Kimochis® character Bug, the picture book Bug Makes a Splash!, and Mixed Feeling Pack #1 (all sold separately) to help their child learn positive self-talk and strategies for being brave and trying new things.
