“The Butterfly and the Grasshopper” is a material specifically designed to assist autistic children in the development of reading comprehension and social skills. This story, while simple, is meaningful, presenting an easy-to-follow plot and relatable characters whose interactions illustrate important lessons about empathy, mutual support, and the value of friendship. Through the dialogues and situations presented, children can learn to recognize emotions, understand the concerns and fears of others, and grasp the importance of offering help and support when a friend is in need. The comprehension questions included at the end of the story are designed to reinforce attention to detail, boost critical thinking, and ensure that children have grasped the key messages of the narrative.
