Overview

For teens with social communication challenges. This book features photos of students engaging in a wide variety of social situations that show, rather than tell, the right (and wrong) ways to interact. The photos transform abstract social concepts into concrete skills. The book addresses social skills such as making friends, asking questions, saying hello and goodbye, interrupting a conversation, respecting other's space, working as part of a group, asking someone out on a date, interviewing for a job, asking for help when needed, and making mistakes.
