The Social Skills Edition of the Autism Behavior Toolbox consists of strategies necessary in getting along with others. They help children become more comfortable and competent in social situations. Detailed strategies are presented in 21 areas including making friends, dealing with bullying and teasing, getting a hair cut, riding in a school bus, social problem solving, travelling and going on vacation, using leisure time, and play, going shopping, eating in a restaurant, going to the dentist and visiting their physicians as examples. Strategies are classified according to age level ranging from age 3-12. The app not only includes strategies but reading lists associated with each topic area. Users can create a note to attach to their strategies that can be exported in an attractive book format as a pdf file into iBooks, sent as a text message, attached to an email, or saved to iCloud Drive, Dropbox, or Google Drive. Parents and teachers can send copies of strategies to one another to assist in program planning and maintain good communication.
In addition to technical refinements to the Autism Behavior Toolbox – Social Skills App, new content has been added. The app now addresses 21 specific social skills with the addition of social problem solving. Every effort is also made to keep content current. Your comments are always appreciated.
