Today, the Centre is giving you TWO social narratives, explaining the importance of keeping healthy. 

These narratives are clear and simple, but reinforce the ‘why’ behind the importance of eating a varied diet.  As explained in a post earlier this month, some autistic children and young people want to know the purpose of something they are being asked to do, and when they understand the reason, they are more motivated to engage. 

Please remember that for those with heightened anxiety around food, the reasons for this will need to be addressed before expecting them to follow this social narrative.
