After many years' social skills work with young people with Asperger Syndrome and other moderate learning difficulties, the authors have compiled a set of training sessions for teachers.

'The book provides useful information on how to do a basic evaluation to the individual's strengths and weaknesses in the area of social skills. The course is split into 10 'lessons'. Topics have been linked closely with PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) at key stages 3 and 4 of the National Curriculum. A useful resource for parents of children where the school is willing to allocate time for a social skills group. - Peach 'This publication is aimed primarily at teaching staff, and links to the four main stages of development at Key Stage 3 and 4 of the national curriculum, especially PHSE. However, the training sessions and workshops are likely to interest social care staff, and parents or carers as well...the material is clearly and accessibly presented.' -Care &Health Magazine
