Publisher Comments:

“When I was a teen, many of the exercises and activities in this book would have helped me calm down. … This book is a real, practical, and positive guide for reducing stress.”

—Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures

Teens with autism have the potential to be excellent actors. They are natural observers—able to study, imitate, and learn social behavior. The Autism Playbook for Teens is designed to bolster these strengths with mindfulness strategies and roleplaying scripts, while also helping teens reduce anxiety, manage emotions, be more aware in the present moment, and connect with others.

This book offers a unique, strengths-based approach to help teens with autism spectrum (including Aspergers Syndrome) develop social skills, strengthen communication, and thrive. The activities contained in each chapter are custom-designed to work with the unique perspectives, sensory processing, neurological strengths and challenges that teens with autism bring to their encounters with the social world.  By engaging in these activities, teens will gain an authentic awareness of their surroundings, leading to better social interaction that is also rewarding, interesting, and fun.

The delightful and creative activities in this book are grounded in well-documented clinical observations and current empirical studies. They also take into account the real neurological differences that exist in young people with autism, and focuses on the unique pathways needed to connect with and inspire these exceptional and fabulous teenagers.

This is the only book available for teens with autism that specifically integrates mindfulness skills and imaginative scripted roleplaying activities for building authentic social experiences.

Synopsis:

Teens with autism are natural observers—able to study, imitate, and learn social behavior. The Autism Playbook for Teens is designed to empower these strengths with mindfulness strategies and scripts, while also helping teens reduce anxiety, manage emotions, be more aware in the present moment, and connect with others. This book offers a unique, strengths-based approach to help teens with autism and Aspergers develop social skills , strengthen communication, and thrive.

Synopsis:

This professional edition includes both the Instant Help book and a companion CD that offers the complete book and printable worksheets for your clients.

The rates of autism, Asperger's disorder, and nonverbal learning disorder are on the rise. Each of these conditions is marked by poor social skills, which is why many children with the disorders are bullied or teased by their classmates. In The Social Skills Workbook two therapists who specialize in treating kids with social skills problems give teens the tools they need to make friends, read nonverbal cues, and learn the 'unwritten rules' of behavior that govern social interactions. Teens also learn conversation skills and how to effectively express feelings and opinions. Social skills don't just make life more pleasant. They are essential to forming strong and satisfying relationships and to achieving success in school and work. The Social Skills Workbook for Teens is a must-have for any teen who is struggling to connect.

Synopsis:

Making friends is a skill like any other-there are rules to follow, ways to measure your progress, and reasons why some people are better at it than others. Although it may seem like this skill comes naturally to those who don't have Asperger's disorder, nonverbal learning disorder (NLD), or other problems relating to others, the reality is that even the most popular people must constantly hone their abilities in order to make new friends and keep the friends they already have. This workbook includes forty activities you can do to recognize and use your unique strengths, understand the unspoken rules behind how people relate to each other, and improve your social skills.

After completing the activities in this workbook, you will discover that you can get along with others and build friendships despite the challenges you face. All you need is the confidence to be yourself while still keeping the feelings of others in mind.
