Asperger's syndrome is a complex disorder, often defined as a high-functioning form of autism. It is characterised by a lack of social common sense, things like how to play or make friends or pick up social cues. As a result, an Asperger's child usually has difficulty in interacting with others.
The Social Skills Picture Book provides a teaching tool that engages the attention and motivation of students who need help learning appropriate social skills.
It demonstrates through pictures nearly 30 social skills, such as conversation, play, emotion management and empathy. Children of all ages learn more effectively when pictures are used to supplement verbal descriptions and instructions.
The Social Skills Picture Book CD is designed to be used along with the main book as a teaching tool. It contains all the photos from the book but no text. The CD be purchased alone if you already own the book, or in the Pack.
