Hi, wonder if folk have come across any good books or resources for social skills training for autism and aspergers.

Any Board Certified Behavior Analysts in your area? Just refer to them, that's what they do, better than anyone else.

Not a book or manual specifically but just read an article that touches on this and implies that early intervention with AD children can mitigate the course to some extent. Gives an overview of the treatment, albeit briefly. I'm sure there are probably some good citations to follow up on within the article as well.

Thanks for the suggestions. That's the sort of thing that I was looking for
