    DescriptionWinner of an iParenting Media Award, this book uses photographs of students engaging in a variety of real-life social situations. The realistic format plays to the visual strengths of children with ASD to teach appropriate social behaviors. Color photographs illustrate the 'right way' and 'wrong way' to approach each situation - and the positive/negative consequences of each. A facilitator - parent, teacher, etc. - is initially needed to explain each situation, and ask questions such as 'What is happening here?' Children role-play skills until confident enough to practice them in real-life interactions.
