Social Skills Training for Children and Adolescents with Asperger Syndrome

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

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 generalization, 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 programs for both students of various age groups and school staff, making this a complete social skills training package for students of all ages.

Overall, this book is in good condition. The corners of the cover are slightly bent, and there is a sticky patch on the back cover where a price sticker has been removed; internally, however, the pages are clean, white and undamaged throughout.
