"Teaching social skills to students with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities has been on the agenda of special educators for a century because they are really important skills for people to learn; that is as true in 2012 as it was in 1912, and perhaps more so. Hanley-Maxwell and Izzo (2012) identified foundational skills for preparing students for the 21st Century workforce and not surprisingly, social skills are identified by these authors as critical components of job success. Eisenman and Celestin (2012) point to the importance of social skills for postsecondary education, independent living, community participation, friendship development...in other words, to a good life. This two volume edition of Social Skills for Students With Autism Spectrum Disorders and Other Developmental Disorders changes more than just the focus on where social skills are taught; it explicitly and implicitly changes the intent of this instruction. Social skills are important in the development of social competence. Social competence is important for social inclusion. The objective of instruction introduced by these books are not only to improve social skills - it is to enhance social inclusion. Without enhanced social inclusion - at work, in the community, in schools - social skills are only isolated behaviors. Friendships. Job and school success. Independent living. Meaningful relationships. Those are the outcomes targeted by this new edition." -- Back cover.
