Wearing a Mask Social Story for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum [downloadable]

This downloadable infographic provides a visual guide about wearing a mask to avoid spreading germs.

Autism Services, Education, Resources, and Training Collaborative (ASERT), a statewide initiative of the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, developed a “social story” to explain why it’s important to wear a mask and how to safely wear and remove masks.

You may view this resource online on the ASERT website, or download it as a PDF. Chinese and Russian versions are also available.
