Learning About Friendship
This book addresses many of the most common social difficulties that children with Asperger's syndrome and high-functioning Autism experience when making friends. The book is designed for easy reference with individual chapters dealing with specific difficulties. Beginnning with a clear description of the social difficulty, the author then goes on to explain to parents the most common errors they make when managing their child's behaviour, before using a story to illustrate how best to approach the scenario in the future. The stories are lively and engaging and use very simplified language, allowing the children to clearly relate themselves to the story as well as understanding the perspectives of the other characters.
This is a fun and practical approach to dealing with friendships and the social difficulties that occur with them. Children, parents and teachers alike will enjoy reading the stories in each chapter and will find the practical approaches featured in each story highly rewarding with regular practice. It is important to note also, that many of the scenarios described in the book such as sharing, taking turns and jealousy can be easily adapted to all children.
