Visual Techniques for Developing Social Skills: Activities and Lesson Plans for Teaching Children with High-Functioning Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, provides practical, hands-on strategies for teaching social skills to children with high-functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. For use in both general education and special education classrooms, each chapter includes a detailed description of the social deficits of these children and ways to address them. Such issues include difficulties with understanding idioms, taking turns in conversation, understanding tone of voice, and body language.
Social skills instruction for K‑8th grade children on the autism spectrum requires an emphasis on visuals, or "show‑teaching" techniques, rather than language‑based instruction. Visual Techniques for Developing Social Skills, fulfills that need, consisting of easy‑to‑use, step‑by‑step lesson plans with a wealth of visual tools and aids for teaching children with high‑functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome. These K‑8 lesson plans, featuring explicit IEP goals, can be incorporated into both General Education and Special Education classrooms and offer both individual and small‑group instruction.
