BALTIMORE, MD
(September 16, 2011)–The National Museum of Dentistry has created a new
resource to help parents of children with autism spectrum disorder
succeed in teaching good oral healthcare. Healthy Smiles for Autism
is a guide that helps parents teach children with autism spectrum
disorder how to brush and floss with the help of step-by-step
instruction, social stories, and visual sequencing cards that can be
used wherever brushing happens. This guide is free and downloadable at www.healthysmilesforautism.org.
The Healthy Smiles for Autism
guide was created to empower parents of children with autism spectrum
disorder with usable tools to help effectively teach their children an
oral health routine. The guide also provides information to help parents
prepare their children for a first dental visit.
