Product description

Typically, ASD high school graduates are unprepared for the transition to independence. Early, ongoing training in the social skills crucial to establishing successful adult relationships - in college, vocational school, residential living, or on the job - can help. He also guides readers through the legal, financial, educational, vocational, and community resources available after graduation. The essence of the book lies in the 73 'Skill Lessons' targeting nonverbal communication, empathy, anger/anxiety management, conversational skills, and employment-related skills - which can be taught by parents, teachers, or professionals. This easy-to-follow resource offers a complete toolbox of social skills and the means to attain them.
