Whether it's learning how long one can look at somebody without being accused of staring; 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 a sensitive topic - it's all here... and more. In this comprehensive and user friendly book Jed Baker, PhD, translates years of experience working with students with Asperger Syndrome and social-communication difficulties.

Social Skills Training For Children and Adolescents with Asperger Syndrome and Social-Communication Problems includes 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 essence of this must-have resource follows: 70 of the skills that most commonly cause difficulty for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and social-communications problems. For each skill there is 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 programs for both students of various age groups and school staff, making this a complete social skills training package for students of all ages.
