Hello! My award-winning books help tweens, teens and adults succeed, including those with special needs and autism. My book Smile & Succeed for Teens teaches teens and tweens the social skills and job skills to succeed. As the former owner of an award-winning specialty business, my books promote and teach the simple premise that good service is good business - that if you treat your customers (or patients, or donors) well, you will be rewarded in return.
1% of my sales are donated to animal welfare. www.SmiletheBook.com
I am honored that Temple Grandin called me and urged me to use her testimonial (below) to get my book out to all teens and adults to teach social and job skills and lower the unemployment rate:
"Smile & Succeed for Teens is a fantastic resource to help teens be successful at work."
--TEMPLE GRANDIN, Author, Thinking in Pictures, The Autistic Brain
I'm not a teacher, but when I do presentations or training this is my teaching style: Fun, Direct, Empathetic, Emphasis on Role Playing and Building Confidence.
