MTV has a show called MADE. It features high schoolers who want to learn or become or achieve a goal. Something really tough for them. A friend suggested I might enjoy it. They have a lot of shows listed, so I don't know even what year the various episodes aired. One show listed was about a boy with Asperger's who wanted to win the school's male talent contest (sort of a beauty contest for guys) and become "Mr. CHS". I really liked how they handled it. A Miss Massachusetts was his coach. He also had a trainer, a coach to teach him comedy, and all kinds of assignments. Miss Massachusetts even had 3 of her friends from the Miss USA pageant come into his work and chat him up. THen he took all 4 of them out to dinner. It helped him become more comfortable talking to women. He even met Heather Kuzmich, the next top model candidate. He didn't win the contest, which made this feel real, not "set up" or like MTV arranged for him to win. he DID gain tons of confidence (He HAD to - they even did a swimsuit competition for the contest!) and learned how to be much more confident in all sorts of social situation. Here is a link to it if anyone else is interested: http://www.mtv.com/videos/made-season-9-ep-11-mr-chs/1590985/playlist.jhtml Let me know what you think about programs like this.
