For Children and Adolescents with Asperger Syndrome and Social Communication Problems. In this comprehensive and user-friendly book, the author translates years of experience working with students with Asperger Syndrome and social-communication difficulties. The introductory chapter includes: skills to target, instructional strategies, behavior management, promoting generalization, and more. In a special chapter by Brenda Smith Myles on relevant characteristics of ASDs, readers will find 70 of the skills that most commonly cause difficulty for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and social-communication problems. The presentation of each skill consists of a reproducible skill handout, as well as activity sheets listing ways teachers and parents can demonstrate, practice, and reinforce the skill in the classroom and at home. A concluding chapter on promoting peer acceptance offers sensitivity training programs for students and school staff.
