Product Description

Making friends can be a challenge for all children, but those with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) can struggle more than most. The friendly story format depersonalizes issues, allowing children to see situations from the perspective of others and enabling them to recognize themselves in the characters. This opens the door to discussion, which in turn leads to useful insight and strategies they can practice and implement in the future. Each story has a separate introduction for adults which explains the main strategies within it.
