Social skills therapists work with people on the autism spectrum to build skills of human interaction. They might help a nonverbal child learn to make basic requests -- or work with an adult with Asperger Syndrome on dating protocols. Or anything in between.

So what is a "social skills therapist?" How do they work? And where can you find a good one to work with you or your child? Get the basics on social skills therapy and therapists in this Autism Therapies 101 article! Then dig a little deeper with this in-depth review of the book The Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships.
