This book was released on 2011-01-19 with total page 444 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is essential reading for any clinician or researcher working with teens with autism spectrum disorders. This parent-assisted intervention for teens is based on a comprehensive, evidence-based, 14-week program at UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, the manualization of the popular UCLA PEERS Program, and the success of the Children’s Friendship Training (Routledge, 2002) manual for children. After reviewing techniques designed to help parents and therapists tailor the manual to the needs of the teens with whom they are working, the text moves on to the individual treatment sessions and strategies for tackling issues such as developing conversational skills, choosing friends, using humor, get-togethers, teasing, bullying, gossiping, and handling disagreements. Each session chapter includes handouts, homework assignments, descriptions of what to expect (and how to handle challenges in delivering the intervention), and customized tips for both parents and therapists.

Why must there be a place called Home? Why is there, somewhere in each human soul, a void that can be filled only by remembrance of that special place? In Broadmoor, four aging brothers, seeking answers and guided by memory, take you with them on a journey back to their childhood, back to poverty and hard times, to betrayal and desertion, and to years of back-breaking labor and struggle to survive. As you follow, you will meet a loving but imperfect family, faithful friends, a few men and women of great honor, and a mother whose character and strength and devotion surpasses all. You will laugh and sometimes cry and, in the end, you will find, as the brothers did, that home is where memory begins and ends; the place where, when all is done, a heart can find sanctuary and certitude and safety and peace. And you will find that, for these brothers, home is a place called Broadmoor.
