Pediatrician Jeanie McAfee created the user-friendly social curriculum "Navigating the Social World" for her daughter Rachel, who was diagnosed with Asperger's at age ten. Since then, it has become a staple for parents and educators. Through humorous skits, audience participation, and excellent presentations, Jeanie and her co-host Amelia Davies address the most urgent problems facing those with Asperger's Syndrome, high-functioning autism, and related disorders: how to increase communication skills, recognize and cope with emotions, recognize and prevent stress, develop abstract thinking skills, address behavioral problems, and much more. Over three hours long, this workshop will guide you through steps that can be employed in the classroom or home. An 80-page booklet is included with helpful handouts and forms to help keep teachers and learners on track.
