This book provides practical, hands-on strategies to teach social skills to children with high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome. It includes a detailed description of the social deficits of these children as they appear in the classroom – difficulties with such things as understanding idioms, taking turns in conversation, understanding and using tone of voice and body language – and ways to address them. Instruction is included in the book to enhance the development of appropriate, measurable, and meaningful individualized education plans (IEPs) to incorporate social goals. Lesson plans are included to facilitate the ability to ‘teach’ these social goals. Parents will find this text an excellent training tool to help develop social education curriculums for their children, and teachers will find it particularly helpful as an easy-to-read manual containing many ‘nuts and bolts’ strategies to utilize in the classroom.



Foreword, by Susan J. Moreno. 1. Is it autism or Asperger – diagnostic criteria. 2. Deficits in social communication. 3. Deficits in social behavior. 4. Sensory differences of children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome. 5. Social skills assessment tools – samples and descriptions. 6. Interventions to promote acquisition. 7. IEP development. References. Index.



Parents who have children that are considered higher functioning on the Autistic Spectrum and those who have Asperger Syndrome will benefit greatly from utilizing the resources within Incorporating Social Goals in the Classroom. Therapists that teach social skills training groups would gain further insights into the classroom issues their students face and can incorporate the checklists and examples in their therapies.
