Michelle's thoughts on Healthy Relationships
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 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 heard, your partner, 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.
