The Friend 2 Friend Social Learning Society, founded in 2002, develops fun and interactive programs that provide children with information about autism in age-appropriate and sensitive manners. The purpose of this program is to educate neurotypical children so that the child with ASD can assimilate into normal social situations. "That's What's Different About Me" is a packaged puppet program, based off of the Friend 2 Friend program, designed for self-use by parents, teachers, and other professionals. The kit contains: * DVD: This interactive DVD contains a brief introduction for teachers and parents, the puppet play, a review of the learning goals and friendship tips, and frequently asked questions. * Program Manual: This manual is designed to assist in implementing the That's What's Different About Me! program at home or at school. Four main sections include the philosophy of the Friend 2 Friend program, the teaching model, how to implement the program, which includes lesson plans, follow-up activities, resources, and materials, and an overview of the Integrated Play Group. * Children's Story and Coloring Book: This story and coloring book tells the story of Crystal and how she and Freddie learned to be better friends. It is adapted from the Friend 2 Friend puppet play (as seen on the DVD) into a readable story and coloring book for classroom use.

Amazing Resource for Teachers! Sep 17, 2006
Heather has come up with an amazing DVD, manual and coloring book to teach typical children about autism. This "must-have" resource would be beneficial for any elementary classroom. The engaging puppet show on the DVD demonstrates to children what autism is and how we all have different kinds of minds. The follow up questions on the DVD encourage discussion, which is so helpful. That's What's Different About Me is going to help so many kids understand their friends with autism and teach compassion and acceptance. Thank you Heather!
