It's not easy for any teen or tween to fit in, but it can be especially tough for Asperkids. Jennifer O'Toole knows this first-hand and this is the book she wishes she had when she was a teen with Asperger Syndrome.
In The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules, O'Toole doesn't offer advice on what Asperkids should NOT do, but on what they SHOULD do with witty and wise insights into baffling social codes. With helpful tips, practice scenarios, checklists, and quizzes, Asperkids will learn how to:
-Thank people, apologize, and offer compliments
-Build and maintain genuine friendships and how to deal with bullying
-Actively listen and have a meaningful conversation
-Step back and see the "big picture" instead of focusing on the details
-Make a correction and let go of the need to be right
