    ©2005. By Judith Coucouvanis, M.A. Written by a behavior specialist who has worked with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) for more than 20 years, this book contains a structured social skills group program designed for students with Asperger Syndrome (AS), high-functioning autism (HFA), and other developmental disorders. The 30 social skill lessons are based on four social behavior areas: fundamental skills (i.e. eye contact and voice volume); social initiation (i.e. starting a conversation and inviting someone to play); social response (i.e. acknowledging others and following directions); and getting along with others (i.e. reciprocity). The author discusses setting up and getting started, promoting student success, dealing with disruptive behavior, and the format and implementation of the skill lessons. Filled with teaching strategies, assessment instruments, activity aids, and sample forms, this social skills program will help educators, parents, and therapists identify target behaviors and individualize the curriculum based on the needs of each child. (Softcover; 351 pages.)
