4.0 out of 5 stars Life Skills Activities for Secondary Students 23 Sep 2010
By J.C
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very full, comprehensive book covering a broad area of social skills. Lots of ideas and worksheets. It missed out on 5 stars because some of the language is very American - it would be great to have an English equivalent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aspergers Unite 23 Oct 2013
By CH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Perfect for Aspergers children who need help with Life Skills and Social Skills. While the book is really for groups, I have still found it perfectly useful for an only child. I just adapt the exercises. I would recommend this for Homeschooling an Aspie, which is why I purchased it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Troubled Kids! 19 Feb 2014
By Bassmntmuzik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its on what seems to be a 3rd grade reading level, but helps students gain confidence. I teach a life skills class in an middle school in Brooklyn and was told that the entire curriculum is in this book. The school gave me the 5 most troubled kids in the school and it turned out to be a great tool.

The books gives great ideas for lessons and activities, along with a daily worksheet. The work is highly manageable for middle school students and they end up working through the worksheet with confidence. I highly recommend this book to anyone teaching this type of course.
