Social Skills Training for Children and Adolescents with Asperger Syndrome
Author(s): Jed Baker
In this comprehensive and user-friendly book, the author translates years of experience working with students with Asperger’s Syndrome and social-communication difficulties. Introductory chapters feature skills to target, instructional strategies, behavior management, and promoting generalization. The essence of this must-have resource is the inclusive skill section:
70 skills that often 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.
