Overview

Pediatrician Jeanie McAfee originally created this user-friendly social curriculum for her daughter Rachel, who was diagnosed with Asperger's at age ten. Since then, it has become a staple for parents and educators. It addresses the most urgent problems facing those with Asperger's Syndrome, high-functioning autism, and related disorders.
 
Dr. McAfee covers how to:

  • increase communication skills
  • recognize and cope with emotions
  • recognize and prevent stress
  • develop abstract thinking skills
  • address behavioral problems

 
Tasks are broken down into small steps, repeated until they are mastered, then generalized. Helpful handouts, templates, and forms will help keep teachers and learners on track.
 
Helpful sections include:
  • Recognizing and Coping with One’s Own Emotions
  • Communication and Social Skills
  • Abstract Thinking Skills
  • Behavioral Issues

Because of its unique focus on teaching the critical social skills that autistic children lack, this book has been cited by "Library Journal" as "Essential to All Collections."
