Overview - THE SOCIAL SKILLS PICTURE BOOK FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND
These resources help teachers, parents, and other professionals learn strategies to teach social skills to children and adolescents with autism and Asperger syndrome.
The Social Skills Picture Book for Children with Autism
This book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations. The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of students with autism to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate a right way and a wrong way to approach each situation as well as the positive/negative consequences of each. The instructor introduces each situation with a brief explanation and asks questions such as "What is happening in this photo?" Students role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.
The Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond
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. Practical, engaging, and written to appeal to teens, this is a great tool to assist teens navigating the often-unspoken rules of social conduct in everyday situations.
