Testimonial: "My child is 8, and although he got along with peers at school most of the time, he only had one true friend. Thanks to the tips in your book, he has gained the confidence and skills to where he now has several friends who reciprocate and enjoy his friendship. This is a great resource for all parents with Aspergers kids who struggle socially at home - and at school." ~ Amanda

Testimonial: "My 6 year old boy had a very hard time with his peers. He's very sensitive and got confused and upset when the other children wanted to do other things than he did. Your tips and  techniques have helped me to show him how to cooperate with peers. He has a much better understanding of the give-and-take of typical child interactions now. I'll be sure to email you with the updates. We may run into a snag here or there as we go along." ~ Michelle

Testimonial: "My daughter simply couldn't understand her peers and did not socialize well at all. Unfortunately, she knew when she was being teased and  became very hostile toward the teaser. Her retaliation often resulted in her having to leave the classroom and spend the rest of the morning in the "quiet room" all by herself. Fast forward... we have been working on "how to interject" and the SENSE method that you discuss in the eBook. These two skills alone have made just a big difference in her coping ability and level of empathy toward others." ~ Mum2Kayla

Testimonial: "Thanks for this wonderful information. We just got started with a few of the skills this week, and I am already seeing some improvement in my child's attitude and self-esteem." ~ Rhonda

Testimonial: "We find this information extremely useful. We weren't getting anywhere before - not even with a therapist. Thanks a bunch for the tips and tricks. Keep it up!" ~ Justin & Hallie

Testimonial: "My Aspie suffered with extreme social anxiety and food phobia. Thanks to the techniques we are working on, he is now able to go out in public with me without a meltdown - and is even eating a few new foods. I appreciate the much needed assistance." ~ Vera

Testimonial: "Glad I found this eBook. Wish I had known about it long before now. Would have saved us a lot of sleepless night." ~ Brandon

Testimonial: "My son is off his meds now. We have made such progress with your methods that his violent mood swings (which seemed to be mostly related to poor peer-interaction) have all but disappeared. You're a life-saver. Keep up the good work Mark." ~ Erin

Testimonial: "I felt so sorry my little man. He so wanted to play with his friends and be accepted, but didn't know how to interact with them. With these skills I'm teaching him, he can actually carrying on a decent conversation and play with peers without conflict. What a great feeling for me to see him able to make and keep friends. Thanks you for this!" ~ Megan

Testimonial: "I wish my child's teachers would read this book. Since I've been working with him, he does much better at home, but school is still an issue - mostly because his teachers don't get it." ~ Natalie

Testimonial: "Not one therapist has made more sense. This program should be mandatory for some parents. This is the most helpful and pragmatic approach so far." ~ Richard & Jill

Testimonial: "Thanks Mark. After reading some of your ebook, it makes me realize areas we have to work on. We've wasted a lot of money and time in counseling. We are going to take some positive steps forward now. I'm glad I can turn to you when I need some advice. Have a great day." ~ Donna Kay

Testimonial: "Hi Mark. Thanks for the support. I was desperate for a new approach to my 8 year olds latest meltdown and school suspension. Diagnosis or not, we can’t keep up the same old reward and punishment response and expect different results. Dyslexia, rigidity, sensory integration combined with inability to develop any peer relationships. Really? It’s not that hard, but in the anti-label world, we are just settling for OT and special ed for reading while waiting for the next meltdown. We’ve been through lots of testing over the years with more scheduled, but no real commitment to dx which equals no real evidenced based supports. So on this day of suspension, I just let Google tell me how to respond. We had already written the story of how it all went wrong – so the research was done with no solutions besides the infamous sorry letters. After reading your info, we did his first Social Story – “How to get to P.E.” This was him leading the way by managing his own behavior to achieve his goal. It was a new story of the same day, except with a positive outcome. (Maybe we don’t get it all yet, but it’s a start). We had no expectations and didn’t even label the notebook. We just wanted the school to know we did something during suspension. After school, the notebook came back with another story of a positive day – assisted by his counselor who got it, hands down – like why not try this evidenced based method? – dx or not – nothing to lose. After work I got a voice message from his teacher thanking us for our Social Story work with our son (we didn’t even say it was a Social Story). It was a profoundly different response than anything we’ve known. If only for this moment, we know that change is possible with a new approach. It just took some initiative to give it a try. We have a lot of work to do, but ‘hope’ is a treasured gift today. Thank you for your support." ~ Lesa
