"When I was a teen, many of the exercises and activities in this book would have helped me calm down. ... This book is a real, practical, and positive guide for reducing stress." --Temple Grandin, author of Thinking in Pictures Teens with autism have the potential to be excellent actors. They are natural observers--able to study, imitate, and learn social behavior. The Autism Playbook for Teens is designed to bolster these strengths with mindfulness strategies and roleplaying scripts, while also helping teens reduce anxiety, manage emotions, be more aware in the present moment, and connect with others. This book offers a unique, strengths-based approach to help teens with autism spectrum (including Asperger's Syndrome) develop social skills, strengthen communication, and thrive. The activities contained in each chapter are custom-designed to work with the unique perspectives, sensory processing, neurological strengths and challenges that teens with autism bring to their encounters with the social world.  By engaging in these activities, teens will gain an authentic awareness of their surroundings, leading to better social interaction that is also rewarding, interesting, and fun. The delightful and creative activities in this book are grounded in well-documented clinical observations and current empirical studies. They also take into account the real neurological differences that exist in young people with autism, and focuses on the unique pathways needed to connect with and inspire these exceptional and fabulous teenagers. This is the only book available for teens with autism that specifically integrates mindfulness skills and imaginative scripted roleplaying activities for building authentic social experiences.… (mer)

The title summarizes the book quite well: its focus is on teaching imagination-based mindfulness activities that autistic teens can utilize to work through anxiety and gain a greater understanding of complicated social dynamics. I read with the hopes that this book will be useful for my son, and I think it will be.

My foremost concern is the attitude of the book: is it negative? Is it about changing or hiding autism? To my relief, it is positive and affirming in nature. The coping skills that the exercises encourage would be useful for anyone, really. It goes into deep breathing techniques, imagining calming scenarios, using internal scripts to prepare for events, and cultivating observation and listening skills.

The language of the book is simple and straightforward, avoiding idioms and colorful language, but doesn't feel dumbed down at all. The book overall is short (139 pages) with 16 chapters, all in a large and easy-to-read font. The very size makes this seem more accessible--I know right now, with weird 2020 online high school starting, the last thing my son needs is for me to thrust a 1000-page tome in his face. Nah, this book is doable. The chapters start with a few paragraphs that establish a realistic social scenario, and the exercises build from there. The book is intended to be read in sequential order so that kids can build on their previously-learned skills. ( )
