A good social skills game - Friendship Island

Our family used to be involved with Discovery Toys, and they always had really neat and unique games and toys. One game that they had that has been really helpful with my autistic son and aspie (Aspergers) daughter (and everyone else to be honest) is Friendship Island.

It's a game that helps kids sort through different social scenarios and come up with ways to appropriately handle situations that come up in every kids' life.

This review of Friendship Island goes into greater detail than I could, and has a really funny link to an episode of The Big Bang Theory...

This game is available through amazon and other retailers now, and there are links to that in the review.

Try it, it's a great family game!
