This curriculum offers an innovative, data-based method of teaching both the "how" and "why" of conversation to students with high-functioning autism and other social cognition challenges. We invite students to become club members, teach them the constellation of skills required for successful conversation, and include a cast of kid-friendly characters designed to facilitate thinking about the social significance underlying each skill. For each of the eight units, we include an engaging story book that introduces students to the target skill being taught.--Publisher.
