We have been exposed to Michelle Garcia Winner's program, Social Thinking, because Ellie's interventionist uses it solo and in tandem with the SLP.  I used it to model this prompt for Ellie at camp.  A completely worthwhile exploration into how our kids think and how to get them to engage with the world in appropriate and functional ways. http://www.socialthinking.com/
