Brushing Teeth Hidden Rules Social Skills Printable

You might not think that there are any hidden rules when it comes to brushing teeth, but trust me, little things like explicitly stating where to spit out the toothpaste is one of those things kids with autism and/or hyperlexia might not pick up on. This free hidden rules social skills printable about brushing teeth helps kids learn all those little expected and unexpected behaviors associated with brushing their teeth. It also makes a great companion activity to do after reading this brushing teeth social story.

About this Hidden Rules Social Skills Printable

Kids with hyperlexia and/or autism need to be taught social skills directly. They often struggle deciphering what the expected and unexpected behaviors are surrounding social situations. I particularly like to use the language of expected versus unexpected instead of good versus bad, thanks to the Social Thinking Curriculum, which is why you will see that language used on this printable.

Simply print, cut, and laminate (optional) the behavior cards and the sorting chart. Then work together with your child to sort the behaviors into what is expected when it comes to brushing your teeth and what is not expected. Be sure to discuss why the behaviors go into which category.

With enough practice, hopefully the understanding of these expected and unexpected behaviors can transfer over and become well-learned social skills for your child.

I highly recommend doing this hidden rules activity after reading through this free social story about brushing teeth first.
