Reviewer: Allison Martin

The book Helping the Child Who Doesn't Fit In assists parents in deciphering hidden causes of social rejection their children may face. The authors explain that children who have difficulty in either reading or in sending nonverbal cues signals can have great difficulty in making and keeping friends. This text takes you step by step through a wide variety of nonverbal communication skills that affect how children relate (often intuitively) to one another. They cover important social aspects of communication such as awareness of personal space, unspoken rules about touching, the impact of gestures and posture, style of dress, and more. A description of the importance of these unspoken but influential rules, types of problems that can arise, case examples are provided for each aspect of communication. The book also provides assessment techniques and suggestions for helping children understand the these key issues. This is a very useful book for parents of children who are having difficulty with social situations, including children with high functioning autism, ADHD, LD, and/or nonverbal disorders.
