Reviews

"This sensitive, clear, and easy-to-read book provides a vast menu of choices to help people with autism spectrum challenges achieve social fluidity and success. Scott Bellini is a great example of learning from the best. His own positive attitude and great social skills are reflected in his approach to this vital information."

- Susan J. Moreno, President, MAAP Services for the Autism Spectrum



"Bellini offers parents and teachers a systematic approach to teaching social interaction skills to children and adolescents on teh autism spectrum in a world where too few of these young people are offered such help. As he points out, all too often our loved ones experience peer failure, rejection and bullying, as well as intense social anxiety and social isolation. This book fine-tunes the practical, systematic approach to improving their social skills that Bellini adovacated in the first edition, published almost a decade ago."
