Product description

Review

"This book is so very timely. The well-known and widely used PEERS (R) social skills training program has been adopted in many clinical settings. By taking the program into schools, and also demonstrating the effectiveness of the program via research studies, Laugeson and her team have produced a manual that the education sector has been asking for. It will be widely adopted and deserves to be so." -Tony Charman, PhD, chair in clinical child psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, UK "The PEERS (R) program is evidence-based, accessible to school-based practitioners, and enjoyable for the students! We have needed something like this for a long time, so it's great that this is now available. This program has clear potential to make a positive difference in the lives of students with ASD." -Susan White, PhD, associate professor of psychology, codirector of the Virginia Tech Autism Clinic, and assistant director of the Child Study Center at Virginia Tech "In an area where few resources exist, this manualized approach offers a guide for teaching social skills to teens with autism and related conditions. It will be of interest to teachers, school psychologists, speech pathologists, and others who deal with this important area." -Fred R. Volkmar, MD, Irving B. Harris Professor and director of the Child Study Center at the Yale University School of Medicine "The PEERS (R) curriculum is an important advancement in social-skills training for teens with autism. This thoughtful, ecologically valid intervention is time limited, makes reasonable demands on teachers, students, and parents, and has shown remarkable outcomes when implemented in schools. I strongly encourage schools to use this program as an important component of a comprehensive program to increase successful social participation among adolescents on the spectrum." -David Mandell, director of the Center for Mental Health Policy and Services Research at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, and associate director of the Center for Autism Research at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
