A Fun, Practical, Interactive Resource to Help Children Explore the Complexities of Friends and Friendship. For children with autism spectrum disorders, making and keeping friends doesn't come easy. They need to be intentionally taught a range of strategies directed at broadening their social understanding skills and competencies. This interactive workbook is aimed at children ages 7-11, a period when friendships are increasingly important and a lack of friendship skills is all the more obvious and challenging. Friendly Facts explores five themes: What Is a Friend?, Being a Friend, Making Friends, Real Friends, and Staying Friends. Through fun activities that appeal to today's youth, children explore and put to a real-life test the major tenets of making and keeping friends.
