Autism: Attacking Social Interaction Problems: A Therapy Manual Targeting Social Skills in Teens is designed specifically for individuals 13-16 years of age and includes ten chapters with three lessons each. The lessons included were selected by the authors who have over twenty-five years of experience working with individuals with ASD. Topics were suggested by parents of teens with ASD and teens with ASD. The lessons are filled with fun and age appropriate activities that incorporate current issues facing teens today such as peer pressure, joining in, honesty, self-esteem, dealing with bullies, and social media. The activities utilize games, worksheets, role play skits and discussion questions and can be used in social skills groups.

The AASIP program provides a comprehensive yet practical approach to teaching social communication skills across the life span to individuals with moderate to high functioning autism spectrum disorders and other disorders which result in social communication deficits. Participants will enjoy engaging with their peers as they increase their confidence and learn how to become social communicators.

The AASIP program offers three additional books for children ages 4-9, 10-12, and a pre-vocational training manual for individuals 17 years to adulthood.
