Incorporating Social Goals in the Classroomby Rebecca A. Moyes
Pub. Date: 03/15/2001
Publisher: Kingsley, Jessica Publishers
This book provides practical, hands-on strategies to teach social skills to children with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome. It includes a detailed description of the social deficits of these children as they appear in the classroom - difficulties with such things as understanding idioms, taking turns in conversation, understanding and using tone of voice and body language - and ways to address them. Instruction is included in the book to enhance the development of appropriate, measurable, and meaningful individualized education plans (IEPs) to incorporate social goals. Lesson plans are included to facilitate the ability to 'teach' these social goals. Parents will find this text an excellent training tool to help develop social education curriculums for their children, and teachers will find it particularly helpful as an easy-to-read manual containing many 'nuts and bolts' strategies to utilize in the classroom.

I find this book to be such a valuable tool for teachers and parents. Much needed information is presented in a practical easy way. Social deficits in these children/adults is the main deficit. Incorporating goals such as the author demonstrates is critical and a vital part of a childs program. This area of their lives is tainted and these children need to be 'taught' and have repitition. I will use this book and refer to it constantly. I have shared this with several friends and professionals who have benefitted from it.
This new title is another great book on Asperger's Syndrome published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. The author gives many great examples for developing social skills, language, and behavior modifications. I recommend this book highly to anyone who is seeking ideas for more success in a classroom/playgroud environments
