Book Description

January 1, 2006

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
  • 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.

Helpful chapters include:

  • Asperger’s Syndrome, autism disorders, and the need for life skills training
  • The transition process and the law
  • College, Career and Residential Options Beyond High School: What parents can do to prepare their son or daughter (by Rick Blumberg,
  • Ph.D.)

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"It is my philosophy that the skills in this book and others do not represent a model of social correctness. They are, however, ideas of how to behave that may help students reach their own goals. . . . The message is, don’t alter the uniqueness that makes you special in so many great ways—just add to what you can do." — Dr. Jed Baker

About the Author

Having earned his MA and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Albany, Dr. Jed Baker is a behavioral consultant for several New Jersey school districts where, nearly two decades ago, he organized a group to help children with social communication problems. That group expanded and ultimately became the Social Skills Training Project under Dr. Baker’s directorship. Dr. Baker also presents lectures all over the world on social skills training, and is on the board of directors of the Asperger’s Syndrome Education Network, Inc. (ASPEN). His work has been featured on ABC News and Nightline.
