Review:

"What sets this book apart from other social skills manuals is its flexibility; it provides a guiding framework that can be easily adapted to any client's or student's needs. White has integrated useful information on a variety of treatment approaches into a cutting-edge synthesis of the best available research and clinical practices. She addresses everything from how to understand and measure target behaviors to how to structure sessions for success, the type of content to cover, and specific strategies to employ. Many case examples make the information easy to understand, and handouts are provided that can be utilized in treatment or teaching. The end result is a book that is very comprehensive and easy to apply--a 'must read' for anyone doing social skills intervention with children with ASD!"--Carla A. Mazefsky, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

"White's writing reflects an abundance of clinical experience with children and youth with ASD. The book is filled with examples and vignettes illustrating the principles and practices of social skills intervention. This book is a valuable resource for therapists, school-based clinicians, and teachers. It contains a wealth of specific intervention strategies, exercises, and worksheets to aid in the assessment and instruction of social skills. It also will be useful as a text in courses preparing clinicians and educators to work with children and youth with ASD."--Donald Oswald, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Virginia Commonwealth University 

"This is an easy, enjoyable read. I was particularly impressed by White's ability to blend empirical data with personal experience. The case studies and examples really brought the book to life and assured me that the information was coming from someone who had been 'in the trenches.' Anyone who endeavors to do social skills training with children and adolescents on the spectrum should make this book a staple in their library."--Lauren M. Hutto, PhD, Regional Multidisciplinary Evaluation and Consulting Center, Florida State University"Backed by cutting-edge research and considerable clinical experience, White takes the theoretical and makes it practical. The book offers rationales behind tailor-made training methods for individuals and groups and provides a variety of templates and handouts for use with students and their parents. Whether you want to understand the greatest challenges facing students with autism and related conditions, or you want practical strategies you can start using today, this book should hold a prominent place on your desk."--Katherine A. Briccetti, PhD, school psychologist, Piedmont (California) Unified School District

"A very useful resource for special educators. The book's logical organization makes the information easy to access. The emphasis on using peers as supports will be appealing to educators who are looking for better ways to provide inclusive school experiences for students with ASD. The chapter on running social skills training groups is especially helpful and practical."--Kimber L. Wilkerson, PhD, Department of Rehabilitation Psychology and Special Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison
