TalkAbility: People Skills for Verbal Children on the Autism Spectrum – A Guide for Parents

This guidebook is for parents of verbal children ages 3-7 with social communication difficulties. Some of these children have a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome, Autism or Nonverbal Learning Disorder, while others may have no diagnosis at all. What these children have in common is difficulty knowing what to say and do in social situations. The guidebook teaches you how conversations work and helps you identify the things your child does well and the things he needs to work on. It teaches you how to make the most of the activities you’re already doing with your child. Simple tips and practical strategies will help you tweak the way you interact with your child to create opportunities for him to learn social skills.
