Building on the seminal guide and curriculum A Work In Progress, Autism Partnership has followed up with this highly anticipated companion series that synthesizes solid information on various teaching strategies with demonstrations of actual sessions with students on DVD. The goal at Autism Partnership has always been to blend a natural, child-friendly approach to teaching while remaining determinedly systematic. This series offers viewers the unique opportunity to see these approaches implemented in actual teaching environments.

Volume 1 in the Work In Progress Companion Series demonstrates the Cool versus Not Cool strategy. This is one of Autism Partnership's most-used strategies for teaching students foundational as well as advanced social skills. Essentially, the strategy teaches students to understand the difference between behaviors that are socially appropriate (cool) and those that are inappropriate (not cool). In later stages they go on to actually practice the appropriate form of the behavior and receive feedback on their efforts. Research confirms the clinical experience that cool versus not cool is effective in teaching social skills and enabling students to monitor their own behavior.

Parents and teachers will find this series to be a helpful companion and extension to A Work in Progress. All author proceeds from A Work in Progress Companion Series will go directly to the Autism Partnership Family Foundation which was developed for three purposes: to provide services to families with limited resources; to fund research that will investigate new strategies and programs that truly make a difference in the lives of children and families; and to disseminate information about evidence-based treatment and provide resources for training parents and professionals.
By Autism Partnership: Ron Leaf, John McEachin and Mitch Taubman, Editors.

Booklet measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", 16 pages with DVD. Run time: 26:57 minutes.
