Playing it Right!

The social world is very complex, and children with a developmental delay in this area need basic tools to help them succeed in their friendships and to communicate effectively in the world. The book is a series of activities designed to help children on the autism spectrum develop basic social skills by focusing on elements of social interaction in a variety of settings - home, preschool, kindergarten and elementary school. The book is intended for use by parents, teachers and others working with young children of varying ages. The appendix includes materials such as reward cards, schedules, choice boards, and worksheet templates.
