SOCIAL SKILLS

(Asperger's Syndrome)

Social skills of people with autism will improve when they are provided with strategies that will improve their understanding of social situations and give them specific behaviors to use when they are interacting with others. Two such strategies, Social Stories and Comic Strip Conversations, have been developed by Carol Gray of Jenison Public Schools in Michigan. Instructions for implementing these strategies are available in books which are available though the Autism Society of North Carolina Bookstore (ASNC) (1-800-442-2762) or through Future Education (1-800-489-0727).
