Far too often, students with Asperger profiles graduate from high school graduates unprepared for the transition to an independent adult life. Early, ongoing training in the social skills crucial to establishing successful adult relationships—in college, vocational school, residential living, or on the job—can help.

The essence of the book lies in the 73 “Skill Lessons” targeting nonverbal communication, empathy, anger/anxiety management, conversational skills, and employment-related skills.
