Item description for S.O.S. Social Skills in Our Schools: A Social Skills Program for Children with Pervasive Developmentaly Disorders, Including High-Functioning Autism and Asperger Syndrome, and Their Typical Peers by Michelle A. Dunn, Ph.D....

Despite the often serious deficits these children exhibit, most schools do not provide social skills intervention through trained therapists to students with pervasive developmental disorders (PDD). Simply exposing children with PDD to typically developing children in school does little to develop their social skills. They do not learn appropriate social interaction by "osmosis." The widely tested S.O.S. program addresses this issue head-on.Operating on a school-wide basis, the S.O.S. program consists of four major components that come together to increase the social skills of children with PDD as well as create tolerance and fairness among typical children: Pull-out social skills lessons for children with PDD, social skills lessons in the classroom for all children, peer mentoring and parent information

SOS Social Skills in Our Schools  Jan 11, 2007
This is a great resource, important for all educators to own.
 
An Exceptional New Book: Dr. Michelle A. Dunn's, S.O.S. - Social Skills in our Schools  Mar 22, 2006
Dr. Dunn's exceptional new book, S.O.S., Social Skills in our Schools, describes a comprehensive social skills curriculum for school age children with Pervasive Developmental Disorder. Dr. Dunn, a pediatric neuropsychologist, is a nationally known researcher and an experienced clinician. Her social skills program has already proved highly successful in numerous school districts in the NY tri-state area.

I am the director of a preschool program in Tenafly, NJ. For the past three years, under Dr. Dunn's direction, we have been implementing the S.O.S. program (modified for preschool children) and the results have been spectacular!

The book is thorough, well-written, amply illustrated and easy to use! Dr. Dunn's groundbreaking curriculum would be an asset to any school including children with special needs.
 
S.O.S. - An Inspired Approach  Feb 17, 2006
This is a fascinating book that contains vital information on how to teach emotional awareness to autistic and PDD children. It is very visually appealing and user-friendly. There are programmes on vital aspects of succeeding with social relationships that I haven't seen covered so effectively before, such as "being a friend", "playground survival" and "being assertive". The concept of booster lessons to act as reminders to children of what they have learned is inspired. Altogether a fascinating book.



 
SOS - - At last, much needed social skills help for our children!  Jan 11, 2006
As a parent of a child with a Pervasive Developmental Disorder, I know first-hand how Dr. Michelle Dunn is one of the definitive experts in the field of children on the PDD spectrum. Her intervention with our daughter has been invaluable over the past year and one-half. I am also mindful of how difficult it can be for one to access a definitive expert in this growing field. "S.O.S. Social Skills in Our Schools" gives us all the access to Dr. Dunn and her social skills program (S.O.S.)that we simply can't afford to pass up. I consider myself lucky to have personally learned how Dr. Dunn truly understands children on the spectrum, and has a unique ability to offer intervention to both address their deficits and utilize their strengths. Her particular specialty - - understanding and addressing the social skills deficits of children with Autism, Aspergers or PDD NOS - - is no doubt a crucial area of intervention for any child diagnosed on the spectrum. And while there are a number of other books and programs which address social skills, this book and the S.O.S. program specifically target social skills in schools with a mainstream or integrated population. It is here that our children spend so much of their day, and readily struggle with the social demands placed upon them. While these skills come more naturally to typical children, they simply do not to our children on the spectrum. Therefore, like any other "skill" in school, such as reading and math, social skills must also be taught to a child on the spectrum. This book, detailing the S.O.S. curriculum, helps teach you how. It is written comprehensively and concisely so that it is understandable by the parent and educator. Moreover, unlike other social skills programs/books, S.O.S. incorporates the benefit of Dr. Dunn's vast expertise and research. Dr. Dunn understands how the brain of a child on the spectrum works and has tailored the S.O.S. program accordingly. In addition, unlike other social skills programs, generalization opportunities are embedded into S.O.S. The program incorporates small group pull out, as well as reinforcement in the larger class, and has a peer mentoring component, as well as parent and teacher training. Therefore, it provides the necessary education for EVERYONE involved to work collaboratively and effectively: The child with the social skills deficits; his/her "typical" peers; the parents and educators. This program works. I can already see the benefit in our school and specifically to our child. Whether you are a parent or educator, don't miss this opportunity to make a difference in the social skills deficits of a child.
