QUEST Program I (Questioning, Understanding, and Exploring Social Skills and Pragmatic Language Together) uses an intensive proactive approach to teach social skills to students with autism by combining written instructions with games, experiential stories, and role play, which results in discussion, friendly feedback from peers, and real-word experience. The goals of the program are to help students gain a better understanding of human behavior and interaction, and to provide opportunities to become familiar and comfortable with the social skills and pragmatic language necessary to be successful at school and in the community.
Ready-to-use lessons address School Success, Communicating with Others, Having Friends, Everybody Has Feelings, Being Safe, and Being Responsible. Included is a CD of printable worksheets, letters, and forms. 300 pages
