This book is awesome because it shows the right way and the wrong way of doing something!
Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this picture book appeals to the
visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, with colour photos
of students demonstrating various social skills in the correct (and
sometimes incorrect) way. The skills depicted are meant to be read,
role-played, corrected when necessary, role-played some more and,
finally, to be practiced by the student in real-life social situations.
Thought bubbles show what people are thinking during these interactions
(not always what you hoped!). Practical, engaging, and down-to-earth,
this is a valuable tool to help teens navigate the often-mysterious
rules of social conduct in everyday situations.
