Elizabeth Sautter has given us a great how-to book on a topic
parents want most: how to help socially challenged children feel
included and make friends. Activities cover the social situations
that confront a child, from first moments of waking to bedtime,
from typical days to special event days and holidays. Parents,
teachers, and professionals will be able to use the ideas to create
a seamless system of support across all settings, teaching the
nuts-and-bolts of social behaviors that can lead to social success.
I can foresee the book providing great ideas for developing IEP
goals. Sautter's latest book is a must-have for professionals and
parents alike. -- Amy Kossow "parent advocate"
