In 2001, Dr. Baker wrote The Social Skills Picture Book designed for young children with social challenges. The positive response from parents and teachers was overwhelming. Now, in response to the deluge of requests from parents with children in their teens, here is Dr. Baker's long-awaited book, specifically geared toward older students. This book offers 1) a visual learning format. Photos of actual students engaging in a wide variety of social situations show, rather than tell, the right (and wrong) ways to interact in different circumstances. Most significantly, they visually illustrated the positive and negative consequences of both ways of interacting. 2) In addition the book offers a way for students and families to create their own Social Skills booklets. Students are encouraged to use photographs of themselves to create a booklet for each skill they learn. 3) Real life situations are presented that are important to teens, such as Making new friends, Asking for help when needed, Interviewing for a job, Asking someone out on a date, Respecting each other space...and much, much more!
