Robison
Be different : adventures of a free-range Aspergian with practical advice for Aspergians, misfits, families & teachers / John Elder Robison. Crown Archetype, c2011.
Description: In his bestselling memoir, Look Me in the Eye, the author described growing up with Asperger’s syndrome at a time when the diagnosis didn’t exist. He was intelligent but socially isolated; his talents won him jobs with toy makers and rock bands but did little to endear him to authority figures and classmates, who were put off by his inclination to blurt out non sequiturs and avoid eye contact. By the time he was diagnosed at age forty, he had already developed a myriad of coping strategies that helped him achieve a seemingly normal, even highly successful, life. In this new book he shares a new batch of stories about his childhood, adolescence, and young adult years, giving the reader a rare window into the Aspergian mind. … he offers practical advice, for Aspergians and indeed for anyone who feels “different”, on how to improve the weak communication and social skills that keep so many people from taking full advantage of their often remarkable gifts. The message this book puts forth is that every person, Aspergian or not, has something unique to offer the world, and every person has the capacity to create strong, loving bonds with their friends and family, and its goal is to help readers and those they love find their path to success.

Good intentions are not good enough / Michelle Garcia Winner, Pamela Crooke. Think Social Pub., c2016.
Description: “Most people are born with an intuitive sense of the social world that allows them to naturally be aware of social expectations and feeds them the information they need to follow the social code. But not everyone is born with intuitive social understanding. Social learning challenges can be especially noticeable in the workplace, where it’s assumed employees understand not only how to do their job but how to effectively work in a group, understand the hidden rules of office etiquette and office politics, and build and maintain solid professional relationships with others. … a primer about the social mind in the workplace, but the concepts and strategies are equally applicable in all areas of life. It’s largely based on the authors’ years of clinical experience working with adults who struggle socially, but may or may not identify their problems with a specific diagnosis. Many are highly intelligent and skilled employees who find it difficult to decipher the often nuanced social underpinnings that are part of daily life, on or off the job. Individuals with social challenges want to be appreciated for who they are and how they contribute (just like all of us do!), but often their good intentions aren’t communicated in a way that others easily understand. As a result, it’s often tough for these individuals to build the relationships and reputation necessary to excel in the workplace, regardless of their expertise or how hard they work. Adults with social learning challenges often need information about social emotional relationships broken down and explained in a way that can help them build skills and understanding, one step at a time. This book does just that – it is a constructive and detailed guide to help adults learn how to do the “social dance” in order to build stronger relationships at work and beyond. Remember, good intentions aren’t good enough! Although the content is geared to the adult with social emotional challenges, this is a great source of information for people working in HR departments to better understand social challenges and how to guide and coach employees with these challenges. … contains easily-accessible information about core concepts that describe how we think about our own and others’ thoughts and emotions, actions and reactions, intentions and motives. In it you’ll learn to become a stronger social observer and use strategies that increase your social competence. … Attempting to interpret others’ thoughts and emotions is as much a part of the workday as is doing our actual jobs. By learning to think socially we can change our behavior to directly affect how we are perceived and treated.”–publisher’s website.

Description: “Despite the growing number of children with autism educated in mainstream classrooms, many students are not familiar with autism. … If students are uninformed about a disability, they often attribute undesirable social behaviors to individual choice. Negative behaviors stem from this lack of understanding. The combination of more autism diagnoses, more children with autism accessing general education, and an explosion of bullying is creating a perfect storm in America’s classrooms. OAR’s Kit for Kids helps address these problems; educating children about autism will foster a greater understanding of the disability and its characteristics, as expressed in school settings. This improved knowledge will lead to a more compassionate and inclusive classroom environment.Our Kit for Kids program is designed to teach elementary and middle school students about their peers with autism. You can use this program to increase awareness of autism among students from grades K-8. With greater knowledge of autism, our youth will learn to see the person first rather than focus on a classmate’s disability. By increasing students’ acceptance of differences, the Kit for Kids creates a more inclusive classroom and overall sense of community.”–publisher website.

Elman
The unwritten rules of friendship : simple strategies to help your child make friends / Natalie Madorsky Elman and Eileen Kennedy-Moore. Little, Brown, c2003.
Description: “Nobody likes me” is a complaint that parents hear all too often, and few utterances make them feel more helpless. What can a parent do for a child who feels isolated, rejected, or out of sync with his or her peers? This practical and compassionate handbook draws on the authors’ experience working with thousands of children to offer you as a parent (or teacher or caregiver) tools you can use — including practical activities, games, and exercises — to identify a child’s social strengths and difficulties and to sharpen any child’s social skills. Nearly every child has trouble with social relationships in some way, at some time. Some children feel awkward in groups. Some have trouble resolving arguments. Some stick out in such a way that they become natural targets for bullies. And some seem virtually incapable of making friends. No matter what your child’s situation — whether he or she is a born leader or a constant complainer, a wallflower or an unwitting aggressor, a poor sport or a perfectionist — you’ll recognize your child’s struggles in the case studies in this book. You’ll discover why certain children don’t “get” particular social conventions, and you’ll learn simple strategies for increasing your child’s awareness of the unspoken underpinnings of social interactions — knowledge that is essential to building, sustaining, and repairing relationships.
