Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond (Paperback)
By Jed Baker

After the immense success of his book, The Social Skills Pictire Book, in response to the deluge of requests from parents with children in their teens, here is Dr. Baker’s longawaited book, specifically geared toward older students.

Winner of an iParenting Media Award, this picture book appeals to the visual strengths of students on the autism spectrum, with colour photos of students demonstrating various social skills in the correct (and sometimes incorrect) way.

The skills depicted are meant to be read, role-played, corrected when necessary, role-played some more and, finally, to be practiced by the student in real-life social situations.

'Thought bubbles' show what people are thinking during these interactions (not always what you hoped!).

Practical, engaging, and down-to-earth, this is a valuable tool to help teens navigate the often-mysterious rules of social conduct in everyday situations.

The Social Skills Picture Book for High School and Beyond offers:
  • A visual learning format
  • Photos of actual students engaging in a wide variety of social situations show, rather than tell, the right (and wrong) ways to interact in different circumstances. Most significantly, they visually illustrate the positive and negative consequences of both ways of interacting.
  • A way for students and families to create their own Social Skills booklets
  • Students are encouraged to use photographs of themselves to create a booklet for each skill they learn. (The booklets can later be combined into a “book,” if desired.) This is a creative, exciting way to personalize each skill as they learn it, and has the further advantage of making performance of the skills more concrete. These booklets can also serve as a reference, should skills need to be refreshed in the future.
