Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
01/01/2014
The Diagnostics and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) lists a deficit in social skills as one of the major markers for autism. But what exactly are social skills? More than the exchange of conversation, these interactions encompass the ability to correctly maintain interpersonal space; interpret facial expression, mood, and tone of voice; and manifest appropriate body and verbal language. Behavioral analyst Bondy (codeveloper, Pyramid Educational Consultants, Inc.) and Weiss (coauthor, Reaching Out, Joining In: Teaching Social Skills to Young Children with Autism) have compiled a well-developed collection of writing on recent advancements in social skills teaching methodology that attempts to provide a firm grounding in strategies with evidence-based research on the discussed methods. VERDICT Providing material difficult to come by, this book is designed for use by frontline teaching staff and is a worthy resource for parents and field practitioners.
