Many children with special needs, such as those with learning disabilities, Asperger's Syndrome or ADHD, struggle with basic communication and social interaction.  Socially ADDept: Teaching Social Skills to Children with ADHD, LD, and Asperger's, offers parents and professionals a way to teach children social skills and rules of social behavior.

The book offers field-tested strategies that decode the complex rules of nonverbal language in a way that children can understand.  It includes ways for children to see themselves and how their behavior might look to others.  The book is divided into eight sections that educators can use as teaching units or parents can work through one week (or month) at a time.  

Working with the ADDept approach, parents and teachers can help children:

  • Handle teasing
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Understand rules of friendship
  • Handle anger appropiately
  • Increase respect for others

Unlike other social skills programs, Giler's approach teaches parents and professionals how to mirror their child's behavior so they can see themselves.  That way children get a real understanding of how they're being perceived, as well as how to interact in a more appropiate way that aligns with what they are trying to express.

This book is a must-read for all people who have, or work with, special needs children.  It provides the tools that children need to succeed in the world and build lasting relationships.
