For kids on the autism spectrum, knowing how to ask for help (and how to offer it) is complicated. The Eldest says he's more inclined to step in and "do it for someone" without any explanation. In other words, he's inclined to give help without offering.
Alas, this contributes to misunderstandings and misconstruals so I put together a little activity inspired by an activity I found on the Teaching Tolerance website).
Gnome needed help to cross the ditch. The King lent a hand.
First flipped through recent photos and tried to identify scenes in which someone needed or gave help. Then we flipped through them again and looked for scenes where someone could have used help but the need went unrecognized.
Then we role-played how we might have offered help in those moments.
Finally, the kids filled out their own copies of the activity sheet (I was the Gnome's magic pen who transcribed her words.)

Shhhhhh.... of course it's free. Haven't you figured out that every single worksheet, lesson plan, unit study, coloring page, and feeling on this website is free?
