Very helpful in beginning peer support groups! Gives you ideas and sample letters, guidelines for the beginner. Made me much more comfortable with the process.

This book has some good chapters with helpful information. One of my favorites is a Book Club chapter where they give information on books who have a main character with a disability. It also gives some solid, basic information on how to do Circle of Friends. Worth the read...

This book is written by the 2007 Nebraska Teacher of the Year. She is an awesome teacher who works with some of the most challenging students. This book is a hands-on book to help teachers in developing a support group for youth with Asbergers, ADHD, students of other cultures trying to fit in, or just kids that may feel "different", etc. Excellent resource.

Too many times we see the child sitting alone, isolated by the traumas of autism or other disabilities that affect socialization. Parents and teachers struggle to reach these children. Their peers ostracize them, ill equipped and reluctant to include them in their social circles. With Open Arms offers a multifaceted approach to assist those who work with students with specific social and educational needs. The text not only offers realistic and accessible approaches to engage students with weak social skills, it also illustrates how to include all members of the school community. This is a must have for any educator, parent, or friend of an individual who struggles to navigate social nuances.
