Peer Play and the Autism Spectrum

Peer Play and the Autism Spectrum : The Art of Guiding Children's Socialization and Imagination

Many children on the autism spectrum spend inordinate amounts of time alone. Without appropriate intervention, they are especially vulnerable to being excluded from their peer group and leading impoverished play lives. This practical guide, Peer Play and the Autism Spectrum: The Art of Guiding Children's Socialization and Imagination, offers an introduction to the basic principles, tools, and techniques that comprise the integrated play groups model. Pamela Wolfberg essentially translates theory into effective and meaningful practice, giving practitioners, parents and other caregivers the tools to initiate peer play groups for children in school, home, and community settings. Teach children with autism to play using this evidence-based curriculum!
