Reviews - What do customers think about The Hidden Curriculum: Practical Solutions for Understanding Unstated Rules in Social Situations?

This is the one  Jul 26, 2008
As an "inclusion" third grade teacher, this is the most practical book on the subject of helping young people develop better social skills that I've read. (And I've read quite a few.) It has valuable information for all students, not just Autistic Spectrum Disorder kids. Clear and simple background and discussion on the issue, followed by lists of social mores that kids might not naturally "pick up on." Eye-opening for teachers who think some kids are being purposely rude or silly...

I plan to do mini-lessons daily with my class using the lists in this book.
Excellent resource  Jul 7, 2008
Excellent resource for anyone working with children or adults with Austism/Asperger's - and for parents too. The format is easy use and explanations are short, simple, black & white - just what those who suffer from austism spectrum disorders require to learn the ins and outs of social skills and interactions.
Helps me quite a bit!  Apr 10, 2008
As a guidance counselor working with multiply disabled students, I found this book to be quite helpful ,and not just with autistic spectrum students; I share this info with classroom staff and I would highly recommend it.
Good reference but scant on practical strategies  Jul 24, 2007
I purchased this book a year ago and it sat on my shelf until today. I dusted it off because I am developing a community-based social skills coaching program for an adolescent with high-functioning Autism. I recalled that the book had a nice list of the hidden curriculum for a variety of social situations (e.g. eating at a restauant, telephone skills, rules for dating, reading body language). There were a few in there that I never would have thought of. This was helpful as a jumping off point for making goals and developing a concise script for the sessions.

There is a section in the book on the strategies to teach the hidden curriculum, but it is limited in content. There is a brief description of a technique, examples of worksheets one could use, but there are no blank reproducible materials of the worksheets they used as examples.

I would recommend this book for those just starting out in the field and teachers or parents who want to know what words to use to explain to their child the "unwritten social rules."

By the way, I would also recommend that you "do not talk about how mucus looks or feels in the throat or looks in your tissue." :)
Totally Unhelpful!  Apr 2, 2006
I bought this book because a reviewer said it would teach people with Asperger's syndrome how to make and manintain eye contact. It doesn't. It just says you should make and maintain eye contact, it doesn't teach you how. This book only tells you what society expects of you, so if you already know what society expects of you, but just cannot figure out how to do it smoothly, don't buy this book. If you already know stuff like, "pull up your pants before coming out of the bathroom", don't buy this book.
