  1. Thank you very much for sharing all this information. At first glance it is overwhelming the amount of information on your site. So I will take my time looking through things that I think may apply to my children in daycare. If I have any specific questions, I will be sure to send you an email.
    Thanks again.

  2. I need a social story about touching adults (private parts). The child is 12 but functioning much lower. He is in a wheelchair and is taking advantage of female therapists. He seems to think it is funny when, I confront him with the idea that he must keep his hands to himself. Do you have a social story already made up for this problem?
