Customer Review: David F. Freschi -
This is a very nice resource for the older child with Asperger's or social cognitive difficulties. There is a lot of flexibility for the skilled educator to adapt the scales for a variety of situations. It is also useful for the inexperienced teacher to use a direct model.

Excellent. Our 15 year old autistic boy understood it and is really working on his behavior, apparently with real understanding of what the social rules are for.
Customer Review: Ann S. Telfer -
This book is one of the best resources for teens with ASD. The author presents real life social scenarios and uses a simple behavioral approach to helping teens understand how to make an appropriate response. It is effective as an instructional tool (and therefore preventive) or as a strategic process to remediate negative social interactions. I highly recommend this book!
Customer Review: J. Brown -
My 15 year old is very resistant to books about his Aspergers but he liked this one. He clearly found it helpful, disappearing into his room, reading it completely and then asking me to order some of the items in the bibliography (another first). So kudos to the author.
This is a great practical guide that will facilitate insight into social conventions and regulations. As a result of completing the activities, a person with ASD will be better able to avoid causing offense or getting into trouble with the law. Kari’s excellent program will be used with people who have high-functioning autism and Asperger Syndrome at our clinic in Australia.
