We found this to be a really helpful resource. Visual and clearly explained in tasteful terminology most of the time.

Perfect way to sum up puberty for girls with special needs. Can double as a reading lesson- very readable

I found this an excellent resource for my 12 year old. We looked selectively and discussed relevant pages prior to her first period, along with "Tara Grows Up" and I felt she was well prepared for her first period. Thank you.
