Overview

Written by Fred Frankel and Jeffrey Wood, two nationally known experts in friendship formation and anxiety management, this book draws from the only evidence-based program addressing the social challenges faced by adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This valuable resource shows how to teach social etiquette as a series of simple rules to follow. Using this approach, teachers can offer adolescents with ASD an easy way to understand how to fit in with peers, based on social context. The book also contains best practices for working with parents—the key to helping kids learn social skills.

Frankel and Wood offer down-to-earth suggestions designed for teaching youth on the spectrum how to converse with others, display appropriate body language, manage anxiety, initiate and participate in get-togethers, and more. They also discuss the pros and cons of teaching students with ASD in educational settings like full inclusion (good for academics but bad for social skills) and pull-out special day classes (where the reverse is true).

Social Skills Success for Students with Autism/Asperger's is filled with practical information on ASD to aid teachers who have received little training on the topic and contains classroom-tested lesson plans, checklists, and sidebars offering helpful advice.
