Finally a social skills programme that covers all the bases! Whether it’s learning how long one can look at somebody; how to shift topics, despite one’s desire to stick with that all-consuming special interest; how to say no to peer pressure; or dealing with sensitive topic – it’s all here … and more.
In this comprehensive and user-friendly book, the author translates years of experience working with students with Asperger Syndrome and social-communication difficulties. After brief introductory chapters on skills to target, instructional strategies, behaviour management, promoting generalisation, etc., as well as a special chapter by Brenda Smith Myles on relevant characteristics of autism spectrum disorders, the reader is presented with the essence of this must-have resource: 70 of the skills that most commonly cause difficulty for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and social-communication problems. The presentation of each skill consists of a reproducible skill handout, as well as activity sheets listing ways teachers and parents can demonstrate, practice, and reinforce the skill in the classroom and at home.
A concluding chapter on promoting peer acceptance offers sensitivity training programmes for both students of various age groups and school staff, making this a complete social skills training package for students of all ages.
