I am using this workbook to help adults with special needs to fit into the social scene. It has been a very effective tool, especially the segment about talking to yourself. It is a wonderful addition to library of workbooks.

Great workbook for my patients. June 5 2008
By Alida D. Novarese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would recommend this workbook to parents or practitioners who work with Asperger's and/or learning disabled teens. It's interesting to them as they do want to improve their social lives. It has over 30 short "lessons" that you can give as therapeutic "homework" or parents can help their teen complete over the summer. Both patients I have used this workbook with so far have actually enjoyed it (a 15 year-old and an 18 year-old, both males).

Wonderful resource for teens facing social distress! Nov. 11 2009
By Sarah Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book (as well as the Anxiety Workbook for Teens) to utilize with a teen girls support group I am currently leading. This, like the other book, was packed with useful ideas, questions, activities, suggestions, handouts, and more. It's a great resource for a school or mental health professional to have on the shelf and refer to or make copies from to talk through with teens. Again, this is a book best used in a setting where these can be talked through, as opposed to just filled out personally. It covers a pretty broad range of topics but is very straightforward. I found myself picking and choosing different exercises to meet the needs of my certain group members. There could be more mention about the internet-side of social networking, because more and more teens are wrapped up in that. But there's room for that in discussion.
Overall, I think it's a great resource!

Thanks so much,

Social Skill Workbook For Teens June 22 2009
By S. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son has high functioning autism .This workbook is age appropriate for High schoolers. He can do it on his own and it helps him keep up with his social skills he learns in school while he is on summer vacation. I would recommend this to anyone who needs help in social situations.There are a lot of books like this for elementary and middle school,but this is one of the few I have seen for teenagers.
