9780470596838: Socially ADDept: Teaching Social Skills to Children with ADHD, LD, and Asperger's

Decodes the often confusing rules of social behavior for all children

Socially ADDept helps educators and parents teach the hidden rules of social behavior to children with limited social skills, notably those with special needs like ADHD, learning disabilities, Asperger's and high-functioning autism, Tourette Syndrome, and nonverbal learning disabilities. The author provides all the information parents and professionals need to know to help kids learn social skills in simple, concise explanations. The book is divided into eight sections that educators can use as teaching units or parents can work through one week (or month) at a time.

  • Includes a way for children to see themselves and how their behavior looks to others
  • Deciphers the complex rules of nonverbal language into friendly, bite-sized morsels that kids can understand
  • Offers a field-tested collection of suggestions and strategies for parents and professionals who want to enhance a child's social competence

Socially ADDept is presented in a hands-on workbook format, complete with reproducible student worksheets that are also available for free download from the publisher web site.

From the Back Cover:

Socially ADDept provides an easy-to-follow program for parents and educators to teach kids with special needs the hidden rules of social behavior. Unlike other social skills programs, this acclaimed approach teaches children to see themselves as others do—covering everything from body language and being a good listener to dealing with teasing—demonstrating clearly what kids need to do to "fit in."

Designed to be used with children aged eight through thirteen, Socially ADDept deciphers the complex rules of nonverbal language into friendly, bite-sized morsels that kids can understand and addresses the most common social errors made by children with special needs. The author breaks the social skills training into ten lessons that can be taught as sequential building blocks and help children to:

  1. Understand friendships

  2. Become a good listener

  3. Use conversational skills

  4. Understand the importance of body language

  5. Understand tone of voice

  6. Recognize friendly behavior

  7. Join a group or an ongoing activity

  8. Deal with teasing

  9. Manage anger

  10. Understand cell phone etiquette and the rules of cyberspace

Socially ADDept is presented in a user-friendly, hands-on workbook format, complete with reproducible student worksheets. For any parent or educator who works with children with special needs —including ADHD, learning disabilities, Asperger's, high-functioning autism, and nonverbal learning disabilities—this book will prove invaluable.
