Social Skills for Teenagers with Developmental and Autism Spectrum Disorders: The PEERS Treatment Manual

Social Skills for Teenagers with Developmental and Autism Spectrum Disorders is a comprehensive, evidence-based, fourteen-week program whose efficacy in working with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and other conditions has been proven in published, peer-reviewed studies based at UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. After reviewing techniques designed to help parents and therapists tailor the manual to the needs of the teens with whom they’re working, the text moves on to the individual treatment sessions and strategies for tackling issues such as developing conversational skills, choosing friends, using humor, get togethers, teasing, bullying, gossiping, and handling disagreements. Each session chapter includes handouts, homework assignments, descriptions of what to expect (and what not to expect), and customized tips for both parents and therapists.
