Irene McHenry PhD, Carol Moog PhD, Susan Kaiser Greenland JD
The Autism Playbook For Teens offers a unique, strengths-based approach to help teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (including what was formerly Asperger’s Syndrome) develop social skills, strengthen communication, and thrive.
The delightful, and creative, activities are grounded in well-documented clinical observations, and current empirical studies. They also take into account the real neurological differences that exist in young people with Autism, and focus on the unique pathways needed to connect with, and inspire, these exceptional teenagers.
Activities, in each chapter, are custom-designed to work with the unique perspectives, sensory processing, neurological strengths and challenges that teens with Autism bring into their encounters with the social world. These activities help the teen gain an authentic awareness of their surroundings, leading to better social interaction.
This is the only book available for teens with Autism that specifically integrates mindfulness skills and imaginative, scripted role-playing activities, for building authentic social experiences.
