After many years' social skills work with young people with Asperger Syndrome and other moderate learning difficulties, the authors have compiled a set of training sessions for teachers. Based on a multi-sensory cognitive-behavioural approach, the sessions cover pre- and post-intervention evaluation schedules, and interview and observation tools.
