Who Can I Touch?
Who can I touch?

In my lessons at school I have some helpers.

They are known as Teaching Assistants.

Their names are ……………………………………………………….

They help me to understand what I have to do.

Sometimes they sit with me. They are always kind to me. I am very fond of them.

Sometimes I like to get close to them, and hold their hand. But this is wrong. It makes them feel uncomfortable.

The Teaching Assistants are paid to help me.

But they are not allowed to touch children.

I will try not to sit close to them.

I will not touch them.

I will pay attention to what the teacher is saying.

These are the people I can touch and get close to.

………………………………

These are the people I am not allowed to touch.
