Publisher Comments:

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:

Reading Line] Skill-building activities for teens with nonverbal learning disorder, Asperger's disorder, and other social-skill problems [Bullets] Read social cues Recognize and use your strengths Understand social rules and make friends

Synopsis:

This engaging workbook includes forty activities to help teens recognize and use their strengths to overcome social skills deficits related to Asperger's disorder or nonverbal learning disorder. Developed especially for teens, the activities in this workbook teach how to learn to read social cues, understand emotions, avoid meltdowns, and more.

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.
