Learning About Friendship: Stories to Support Social Skills Training in Children with ASD and High Functioning Autism


Product Description

Published UK, 2011
This collection of ten fully-illustrated stories explores friendship issues encountered by children with ASD aged four to eight years and looks at how they can be overcome successfully. Key problem areas are addressed including sharing, taking turns, being a tattletale, obsessions, winning and losing, jealousy, personal space, tact and diplomacy and defining friendship. The stories depersonalise issues, allowing children to see situations from the perspective of others and enabling them to recognise themselves in the characters. Each story has a separate introduction for adults which explains the main strategies within it.
