Book Description

April 15 2008 Instant Help
Making friends is a skill like any other-there are rules to follow, ways to measure your progress, and reasons why some people are better at it than others. Although it may seem like this skill comes naturally to those who don't have Asperger's disorder, nonverbal learning disorder (NLD), or other problems relating to others, the reality is that even the most popular people must constantly hone their abilities in order to make new friends and keep the friends they already have. This workbookincludes forty activities you can do to recognize and use your unique strengths, understand the unspoken rules behind how people relate to each other, and improve your social skills.

After completing the activities in this workbook, you will discover that you can get along with others and build friendships despite the challenges you face. All you need is the confidence to be yourself while still keeping the feelings of others in mind.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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).

4.0 out of 5 stars 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,

Sarah Baker, MAFMT

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
