The Social Success Workbook for Teens: Skill-Building Activities for Teens with Nonverbal Learning Disorder, Asperger’s Disorder or Other Social-Skill Problems

Overview

Grades 6-12. Making friends is a skill like any other—there are rules to follow, ways to measure progress, and reasons why some people are better at it then others. This engaging workbook includes 40 activities to help teens recognize and use their strengths to overcome social skills deficits related to Asperger syndrome or nonverbal learning disorder. Developed especially for teens, the activities in this workbook teach how to read social cues, understand emotions and responses of other people, avoid meltdowns, and make it easier to handle challenges. This professional edition includes both the workbook and a companion CD that offers the complete text and reproducible student worksheets.
