Based on an ASA Award Winner, this textbook addresses the critical need for social skills programming for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders and other social difficulties. The book is unique in presenting a comprehensive model that incorporates five fundamental steps: assess social functioning, distinguish between skill acquisition and performance deficits, select intervention strategies, implement intervention, and evaluate and monitor progress. Rather than promoting a single strategy, the model details how to organize and make sense of the myriad social skills programs and resources available.

According to Peter Vermeulen, treatment of autism is still focused on behavior and minimally focused on observation or determining the way of thinking that leads to the behavior. In this groundbreaking book, inspired by the ideas of Uta Frith, the internationally known psychologist and a pioneer in the theory of the mind as it relates to autism, Vermeulen explains in everyday terms how the autistic brain functions, with a particular emphasis on the apparent lack of sensitivity to and awareness of the context in which things happen. Full of examples, often humorous, the book goes on to examine "context" as it relates to observation, social interactions, communication, and knowledge. The book concludes with a major section on how to reduce context blindness in these various areas, vital for successful functioning.
