From the Author:

Social Skills Solutions is the result of working with children for many years and searching for a tool that assesses and provides baseline social skills that meet all of the specific social skills needs for children with autism, as well as providing teaching strategies in a comprehensive process. The Social Skills Checklist (assessment tool) and module system (teaching methods) were developed with feedback from parents, children and school professionals. Without their help, this manual would not have been possible
