This book won an iParenting Media Award, and for good reason. This picture book is designed to appeal to the visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, and with color photos of students demonstrating various social skills in the correct (and sometimes incorrect) way, it can have a great impact. The skills depicted can 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 (and they’re not always what you might have thought!).
The book offers practical, down to earth suggestions to help teens navigate the often-mysterious rules of social conduct in everyday situations.
