Understanding context is critical for social success. I spent several years trying to master certain social skills. I read books on the subject and even studied with people. It wasnt until I learned about social context that I began to see huge improvements in the area of friendship in my life. People with autism need to learn a social skill set for several different environments. We access a different set of social skills for the club or at a party than we would at the library. We must learn how to access different social channels for various situations. We also need to understand the different context of each social relationship. A good friendship is not the same context as a co-worker. We must learn how to behave differently with the co-worker than we do our friend. This book will help your child or student learn the different channels or contexts of social relationships. Included in this manuscript is an appendix of terms that we typically see associated with Autism. Travis takes these terms and breaks them down to show you how they affect him and apply to his daily life.
