Visual Techniques for Developing Social Skills
Author(s): Rebecca Moyes
Social skills instruction for K-8th grade children on the autism spectrum requires an emphasis on visuals, or “show-teaching” techniques, rather than language based instruction. This book fulfills that need, consisting of easy-to-use step-by-step lesson plans with a wealth of visual tools and aids for teaching children with high-functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. These K-8 lesson plans, featuring explicit IEP goals, can be incorporated into both General Education and Special Education classrooms and offer both individual and small-group instruction.
