This book provides practical, hands-on strategies for teaching social skills to children with high-functioning autism and Asperger's Syndrome. For use in both general education and special education classrooms, each chapter includes a detailed description of the social deficits of these children and ways to address them. Such issues include difficulties with understanding idioms, taking turns in conversation, understanding tone of voice, and body language.
