Be Safe: Who Should Help Me in the Bathroom Social Story
This resource, part of the Be Safe resource collection, is a social story that explains who should help an individual if they need assistance in the bathroom, and how they should provide that help.
Sometimes, I may need help in the bathroom.
I may need help bathing, dressing, or taking care of my body.
A trusted adult should help me in the bathroom only if I say it’s okay, or I ask them for help.
If someone tries to help me in the bathroom and I don’t like it, I should ask them to stop.
If I don’t feel comfortable with the person helping me, I can ask someone else to help me.
I am in charge of my body.
