Strategies for workplace social success July 11 2011
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In learning about Asperger's to better understand my grandson and his difficulties connecting with his peer group, I discovered that I, too, have Aspie tendencies. This book gives logical understanding for emotional connections that neurotypical people (most of us) do without thinking about them. It explains why social connections are important in the workplace and gives strategies for achieving them for those to whom such connecting does not come naturally. The authors have experience working with troubled adults for many years and give anecdotes to support their recommendations.

This book only delivers 50% of the title. It never really helps me understand why I should care. June 12 2013
By Ty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are great examples of good intentions gone bad, coupled with explanations of what is expected. However, there is little to convenience me that I should care. There is tons of talk about 'that is how things are done' without any regard for whether it is done best or most efficiently. Plenty of discussion on how to move to the "norms" way, without any consideration of meeting half way.
As a professional on the Autism Spectrum, this book ... July 23 2015
By Laurie A. Couture - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a professional on the Autism Spectrum, this book has been my "bible" for improving my professional and personal relationships! With every page giving me a, "So THAT's WHY..." moment, this book breaks down professional and work-related relationships, expectation, behavior and interactions piece by piece and helps Aspies to learn the "secret" nuances, codes, body positions, facial cues, words, phrases, and body language to not just simply make it through the work day, but to understand others, word things in a way that considers others, challenges us to consider "neurotypical" perspectives, ease our emotions, understand that there is more expected at work than just to work, and how to make work acquaintances and friends as well! Despite being gifted at my work both in my job as a clinician and in my personal business as an author and consultant, I felt lost in many situations before I read this book; it completely turned my working relationships around for the positive in both my clinical and my outside work! I have not yet found another book for adult Aspies as helpful as Social Thinking At Work. Just the exercise sheets alone helping Aspies to break down in detail how certain Aspie actions might be perceived by non-Aspies are worth the cost of the book alone. I hope this author considers expanding to write an adult focused book about Social Thinking outside of work, too.
The mother lode of vocational social thinking for people on the autism spectrum. Nov. 24 2014
By John D. Comegys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the authors told me this book had nuggets of good and useful information. She was too modest. This is the mother lode of good ideas about how to approach social communication and social cognition difficulties because it follows the structure of analyzing social communication and social cognition used by the Speech and Language experts such as the two authors. The next step is to apply this knowledge to work social and communication demands. This book makes a very good start. The needs are huge and variations infinite, so this work may not fit every specific need, but it is the best all around book of its kind on the market that I have found to date. I use it in several job clubs for adults with Asperger's Syndrome.
