Jack Entering Puberty. (Activity To Practice Reading Comprehension, Social And Conversation Skills For Autistic Children)


This material, crafted around the story of “Jack Entering Puberty,” is designed to enhance reading comprehension and educate autistic children and young people about the changes during adolescence. Through the narrative of Jack, who experiences the typical transformations associated with puberty, this text serves as a relatable and educational resource. The story addresses not only the physical changes like voice deepening and the growth of body hair but also discusses emotional adjustments and the importance of privacy during these sensitive times.


Moreover, the structured questions following the story prompt the readers to reflect on what they have learned and encourage a deeper understanding of the content.
