The authors have outlined ways to teach critically important skills in social awareness, social communication, social interaction, social learning, and social relatedness. They outline sub-skills, prerequisites, and methods of instruction for each area in a methodical, easy to read, logical, and elegant manner. One of the many strengths of this book is the ways in which different threads of the curriculum are emphasized and interwoven. This book is very thorough, and approached these skills with programming that is both broad and deep. It is a very practical book as well, addressing real world issues such as teasing and bullying, conversational development, and social comprehension. In general, this book outlines skill development in clear and behavioral frameworks, and provides parents and teachers with a wealth of information regarding goals and strategies. Most individuals with ASD’s have substantial social challenges. Many receive good and thorough intervention in many areas of the curriculum, but few receive excellent instructions in social skills. This book will increase the quality of social skill instruction offered to learners on the spectrum. – –Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D.
