Diary of a Social Detective: Real-Life Tales of My&hellip by Jeffrey E. Jessum
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 Feb 2014
Just a brilliant way to teach social skills without it being try and repetitve.
The lead character is paid by his peers to solve their social faux pas.
Half way through you, the reader get the chance to solve the plot.
Deals with issues of
talking too loud
being indiscreet
bullying -victim's perspective
bullying - bully's perspective.......and many more.
Easy to read alone or to use as a text to share in group work.
Great for kids with Autism/Aspergers
Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disor&hellip by Elizabeth Verdick

I work as a support teacher.
Pupils often have little idea about their diagnosis but lots of experience of the challenges that it causes.
This is a great practical book in clear chunks and visually appealing to the 10 - 14 age range (or older)
Lots of explanations why?
lots of great info
Lots of why not/top tips lists.

Great for young people to understand their diagnosis, to work out what it means for them and to develop a tool kit of coping and succeeding strategies.

The only negative is that the vocab is all American - recess for break time.
