Overview

This professional edition includes both the Instant Help book and a companion CD that offers the complete book and printable worksheets for your clients.

The rates of autism, Asperger's disorder, and nonverbal learning disorder are on the rise. Each of these conditions is marked by poor social skills, which is why many children with the disorders are bullied or teased by their classmates. In The Social Skills Workbook two therapists who specialize in treating kids with social skills problems give teens the tools they need to make friends, read nonverbal cues, and learn the 'unwritten rules' of behavior that govern social interactions. Teens also learn conversation skills and how to effectively express feelings and opinions. Social skills don't just make life more pleasant. They are essential to forming strong and satisfying relationships and to achieving success in school and work. The Social Skills Workbook for Teens is a must-have for any teen who is struggling to connect.
