Do you find it hard to make friends? Do you struggle to know what to say to start a conversation?

In this book, Paul Jordan, who is on the autism spectrum, explains how to make sense of everyday social situations you might encounter at school, university or in other group settings. He reveals how, with the use of just 65 simple words, it is possible to create 'scripts for thinking' that break conversations down into small chunks and help you to think of what to say, whether you are speaking to a fellow student, starting a conversation with a new friend, calling out bullies or answering a teacher's question.

These small words will be a big help for all teenagers and young people with ASD.


'[The author] has developed a simple strategy for facilitating conversation that can greatly enhance the quality of life of someone who has Asperger's syndrome. The art of conversation can be learned and achieved, and this valuable book explains how.'
- From the foreword by Professor Tony Attwood PhD, Brisbane, Australia
