I have 2 possible ones in mind, but wanted to hear if any of you have had success with any. These could be social skills books for your kids too look at and/or books for us to know what to teach them about social skills. This is for my dd who is pddnos.

Our OT has a daily living calendar that has "sayings' for each day. THings like - be sure you pay for your stuff before you leave the store, it's never ok to tell someone else that you think they look ugly, always wait for everyone else to get a slice of pizza before you take your second piece, etc.<br><br>
I'm pretty sure it's geared for older students, just by the text and content. It's fun to read through though, and some of the stuff is kind of cool. My current favorite is about not wiping your nose on your shirt when you're out in public.

The Jed Baker ones are the best ones. The first four here are all good: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%2Fref%3Dnb_ss_gw%2F102-4878325-1093743%3Furl%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps%26field-keywords%3Djed%2Bbaker%26x%3D0%26y%3D0" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw...+baker&x=0&y=0</a>

This may or may not be what you're looking for but I heard a talk by the author of "The Unwritten Rules of Friendship" that sounds worth reading. it's geared toward the elementary age, and since I haven't read it, I can't tell you if it's appropriate for ppd-nos.<br><br>
eta - it's #6 on the amazon search above.

What age are you looking for? For older kids (upper elementary through early high school), I'd recommend Navigating the Social World as a curriculum. For younger children, I'd recommend Social Skills Activities for Special Children as a curriculum. I also love Carol Gray's The New Social Stories Book.<br><br>
For toddlers, preschoolers, elementary children (as well as older children who may have a lower level of "functioning" so to speak), I'd recommend "Tobin Learns to Make Friends". It actually is about a train who wants to make friends, and it goes through all of the various social situations that the train has difficulties in. If your child has a train obsession, it's pretty much the *perfect* book! LOL!<br><br><a href="http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbninquiry.asp?r=1&ean=9781885477798" target="_blank">http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...=9781885477798</a>
