It presents tried-and-true strategies that address difficulties with social skills and Executive Function, cognitive rigidity, self-esteem issues, and more.

It includes:

- Focused chapters on skills for life, school, work, and independent living

- Photocopiable teaching materials and tips for classroom management

- Assessment strategies, including student self-assessment materials and feedback forms

- Contributions from experts in the field, including Dr. Stephen Shore, Liane Holliday Willey, Dr. Brenda Smith Myles, Barbara Bissonnette and Jennifer Cook O'Toole.

Drawing on over 30 years' teaching experience at the College Internship Program (CIP), Dr. Michael P. McManmon's toolkit is a complete curriculum for educators, clinicians, and professionals who teach or advise young adults on the ASD or LD Spectrum. It can also be used effectively by parents and individuals for self-study.
