The Social Skills Picture Book Teaching play, emotion and communication to children with Autism
Paperback 4yrs+ Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations. The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of children with ASD to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate the ""right way"" and ""wrong way"" to approach each situation and the positive/negative consequences of each. A facilitator (parent, teacher, etc.) is initially needed to explain each situation, and ask questions such as ""What is happening in this picture?"" Children role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.
The Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond
Paperback 10yrs + Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this picture book appeals to the visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, with color photos of students demonstrating various social skills in the correct (and sometimes incorrect) way. The skills depicted are meant to be read, role-played, corrected when necessary, role-played some more and, finally, to be practiced by the student in real-life social situations. “Thought bubbles” show what people are thinking during these interactions (not always what you hoped!). Practical, engaging, and down-to-earth, this is a valuable tool to help teens navigate the often-mysterious rules of social conduct in everyday situations. Helpful sections include: Conversation, Building and Maintaining Friendships, Asserting Your Feelings, Conflict Resolution, Asking Someone Out on a Date, Dealing with School and Work, Dealing with Mistakes, Working with Others—Compromising, Job Interviewing
