Social Skills Training: For Children and Adolescents with Autism

Original price

Social Skills Training is the complete package: whether learning how long to look at somebody; how to shift topics, despite a desire to stick with that all-consuming special interest; how to say no to peer pressure; or dealing with sensitive topics – it’s all here. In this comprehensive and user-friendly book, internationally renowned author Jed Baker translates years of experience working with students with autism and social communication differences.

This is not just another social skills curriculum, but instead, a manual that lays out the key components of effective social skills training. Detailed chapters contain critical elements of skills training, including how to collaborate with and motivate clients, target relevant skills, match teaching strategy to language ability, generalise skills, create accepting peer programs, and measure progress.

This 20th anniversary edition includes more than twenty-five new skill lessons and new research.
