Social Skills Solutions
A Hands-on Manual for teaching social skills to children with autism. Kelly McKinnon, M.A. BCBA & Janis Krempa, M.Ed. BCBA.
Social Skills Solutions is a unique, hands-on manual that provides instruction on building a social skills program from ten different comprehensive modules, all geared toward the specific diagnostic and social deficits of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Based on feedback from parents, professionals, and children alike, the authors effectively illustrate the process involved in implementing a social skills group using the principle of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)-the well-documented and substantiated method for teaching skills to children with ASD. Creative and motivating strategies provide concrete ideas on specific topics, each broken down into simple steps for using behavioral methods, visual aids, video modeling, and naturally occurring situations to facilitate social skills learning.
