Over the years of providing Destination Friendship, the authors have witnessed many magical moments. This book was written with the hope of spreading this magic to many more individuals with ASD. It provides a roadmap for the reader to follow when teaching friendship skills. The book provides a series of theme-based sessions and a large selection of fun activities. It also includes subtle strategies designed to target a wide variety of skills that are necessary to foster friendships. The Destination Friendship model is based on philosophy that all participants should be accepted for who they are and should be guided and supported to grow in a positive way as they develop friendship skills. Furthermore, participants are encouraged to be proud of who they are and the interests they love. They are never made to feel “different.” Learn more on Amazon.*
