Lorrie Ann Harrington originally created this Halloween story to teach her son, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder, new vocabulary, language-based concepts, and social communication skills.
She found that incorporating his interests, including photographs of him in the stories, helps him to stay engaged and relate to the teaching topic more easily.
This eBook focuses on the â€œWHâ€ question â€œWHERE?â€ and the personal pronoun â€œme.â€
The question â€œWhere?â€ is used repeatedly throughout the book to help children learn location concepts such as- â€œin front ofâ€, â€œbehindâ€, and â€œnext to.â€ In addition, the story is structured in such a way that it can be used to help teach children to identify, label, and categorize words, by commenting on the text and pictures.
â€œRead it to meâ€ by touching the sentences.
