Healthy Relationships is a workbook for teens and adults with autism, ADHD, intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, Williams syndrome, and other conditions that may present challenges in building relationships. Through activities, cartoons, and scenarios, the workbook teaches how to investigate and build friendships and relationships safely over time.
Be it in friendship or dating, the hidden rules and nuances that are part of relationships are difficult to understand. Healthy Relationships provides the reader with the steps to thoughtfully and proactively learn the signs of unhealthy relationships and the skills necessary to build healthy relationships. Activities encourage readers to explore more about who they are, identify their self-talk, and better understand the impact these have on their relationships. Comes with an interactive multimedia USB drive. Extend the lessons with the supplementary workbook, Healthy Relationships Lesson Plans!
Michelle Garcia Winner, the Founder of Social Thinking, says:
“Finally, a workbook for young adults that addresses the tricky world of relationships in a concrete and clear manner! This mini curriculum walks teens and young adults through many possible scenarios of friendship and dating as well as offering practical advice. While designed for more concrete learners, the acronyms are timely and helpful for many. For instance, the mascot is a SNAIL whose acronym stands for: Slow down, Negotiate, Ask questions, Investigate (think about your choices) and Listen (to your partner and your thoughts). Written by a psychologist, educator, and speech-language pathologist, this guidebook is a must-have for young adults with autism, intellectual disabilities, and learning differences.”
