I can't believe no one has ever suggested this sort of programming for your DD already. It was one of the very first things DS's psych did with him around the time he was diagnosed. So, not quite 7.
Circles is good because it allows you to personalize the situations to her world within the rubric presented so that she can more easily buy-in and access the strategies in the moment.
Difficult as this is to discuss, it is critical to do so. And I don't love the one zaraceligon, posted. It doesn't give you a clear plan to teach the information she needs in a clear and visual manner so she understands it. And it completely ignores the reality that many children who are sexually abused are victims of family members, trusted family friend (about 3/4 of the victims of reported abuse fall into this category) or other children (close to 25%).
Kids on spectrum or with social cognition issues are uniquely at risk. If you were to design a victim, they'd pretty much be it. Typical in appearance, more at ease with an indulgent adult, willing to make themselves uncomfortable for the acceptance of peers and prosopagnosia (faceblindness) and you have an easy mark.
