This is a major work that teaches authentic, appropriate social skills to students with autism as they navigate the social world. Crafting Connections not only provides concrete information on developing social skills but also instructs readers on how to assess competency, develop programs, and create social skills curricula. The book contains a comprehensive curriculum that focuses on Social Awareness, Social Communication, Social Interaction, Social Learning, and Social Relatedness. The authors present the methods and means to teach and individualize programs. Sub-skills, prerequisites, and methods of instruction are outlined for each area in a methodical, easy-to-read manner.

There is an emphasis throughout on teaching interaction and creating authentic social competence. Real world issues such as teasing, bullying, conversational development and social comprehension are addressed in detail. The guide highlights skill development within a behavioral framework, providing quality social skill instruction to learners on the spectrum. Crafting Connections aims to foster genuine relationship development while remaining systematic and analytic; it goes beyond the rote and simplistic and helps develop social competencies as well as genuine meaningful, life enriching relationships.

This is a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide that will help teachers, clinicians, and families teach social skills to children and youth with autism spectrum disorders.

Review:

This is a terrific addition to the information available on how to teach social skills. The authors have outlined ways to teach critically important skills in social awareness, social communication, social interaction, social learning, and social relatedness. They outline sub-skills, prerequisites, and methods of instruction for each area in a methodical, easy to read, logical, and elegant manner. One of the many strengths of this book is the ways in which different threads of the curriculum are emphasized and interwoven. This book is very thorough, and approached these skills with programming that is both broad and deep. It is a very practical book as well, addressing real world issues such as teasing and bullying, conversational development, and social comprehension. In general, this book outlines skill development in clear and behavioral frameworks, and provides parents and teachers with a wealth of information regarding goals and strategies. Most individuals with ASD's have substantial social challenges. Many receive good and thorough intervention in many areas of the curriculum, but few receive excellent instructions in social skills. This book will increase the quality of social skill instruction offered to learners on the spectrum. ---Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D.

One of the most comprehensive and easy-to-use guides available for teaching social skills to children and youth with autism spectrum disorders. A valuable resource for teachers, clinicians, and families! - --Tristram Smith, Ph.D.
