I was unable to find a social group for my son's age, and they were 40.00 a session. I found this at the library and ended up buying it. I don't buy much... the book walks you through social skills with worksheets, discussions, and social workouts. This book can guide you through helping your child learn better skills- at first its a little overwhelming- but we are working through it and have found it helpful for the child who is showing interest in working on his/ her skills. My son is 13 now, but I am using it as discussion for all of our kids. I think that it works better with a small group, like our 4 kids, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work one on one.
