Social Skills Development: Practical Strategies for Adolescents and Adults with Developmental Disabilitiesby Stephen J. Antonello
Here is a comprehensive guide to help increase social skills in adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities and related conditions. It is based upon the real-life difficulties and needs of these individuals experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral problems. It provides a complete collection of social skills topics and sub-skills which range from very basic communication skills to highly complex developmental stage-dependent skills. Each skill is fully described with underlying rationale; suggested modifications are given for younger and more severely developmentally delayed individuals; specific skills to be learned are delineated; key vocabulary words are defined; two case vignettes are provided for each skill; and an assessment tool is provided to measure the acquisition of each skill and sub-skill. Clinical Psychologists, School Psychologists, Educators, and Parents. A Longwood Professional Book.
