Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations. The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of children with ASD to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate the "right way" and "wrong way" to approach each situation and the positive/negative consequences of each. A facilitator (parent, teacher, etc.) is initially needed to explain each situation, and ask questions such as "What is happening in this picture?" Children role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.

This book provides written information as well as visual. It is very well set out and the pictures are very clear. Kids can look at the book and identify problems and solutions as well as discuss it with parents. I found the visuals a good way of showing my child the area which they were having problems with and also the right way to do it.
The book covers topics such as how to get an adults attention without being rude, the clues to look for when approaching other children, how to ask to join in with other children etc.
The photographs show the right way and the wrong way to do things, with explanations.

The 'Social Skills Picture Book' is a wonderful resource for parents, teachers and professionals alike, to assist in helping children understand social and other behavioural interactions in various situations.
As a Professional Counsellor (Autism Spectrum), this book will be a lovely tool for assisting children (and even teens and adults) to understand certain interactional concepts and how to respond to difficulties, misunderstandings and how to get the best out of sharing their life with others.
The colourful and sequential pictures and 'stories' are particularly relevent and supportive of learning for the 'visual' learner.
Kind regards,
