Young people with autism can be particularly susceptible to setbacks, often leading to depression and hopelessness. Social Stories(TM) introduce a different way of looking at common life setbacks, and offer tools to overcome these obstacles, build resilience and develop coping strategies for the future. This is the fourth volume in the Growing Up with Social Stories(TM) series, based on Carol Gray's highly effective Social Stories(TM) model. It shows how to identify the life challenges that a young person with autism finds the most difficult. This new guide demonstrates how to help individuals with autism deal with challenges specific to them, once these challenges have been acknowledged and understood. This book is an invaluable guide for learning to create personalised Social Stories(TM) that can be used time and time again to develop resilience in people with autism and help them to cope better with adversity.

Industry Reviews

What an absolute gem of a book, brimful of practical strategies for supporting children's resilience and mental health that can be immediately put into practice by both parents and teachers. -- Davida Hartman, Senior Educational Psychologist, Director at The Children's Clinic, Dublin, and author of Beating Anxiety: What Young People on the Autism Spectrum Need To Know
It is important to build up resilience in young people with autism but Siobhan Timmins goes that one step further and explains clearly and simply exactly how this can be done. -- Kathy Hoopmann, author of All Cats Have Asperger's Syndrome and All Birds Have Anxiety
Without resilience, there will be a fragmented sense of self and the risk of developing signs of depression. In this easy-to-follow and insightful book, Siobhan Timmins illustrates how versatile Social Stories can be, and contribute to a positive sense of self and the ability to cope with many aspects of autism. -- Tony Attwood, author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome and Exploring Depression, and Beating the Blues
Dr Timmins' ideas, approaches and strategies combined with actions have inspired change for her son and others. Mental health services, social care, educational settings and families will find this book a stimulating and informative read which could further improve their skills and practice. -- Lisa Parker, NHS Neuro-Developmental Mental Health Practitioner, Child and Adolescent Services and ASD & ID IAPT Therapist
