Description:

Many children on the autistic spectrum seem to be at a very early developmental stage in their play, which tends to be less spontaneous, exploratory and varied than that of other children. This accessible handbook describes different play sequences which encourage the integration of social, emotional and cognitive development in autistic children. The easy-to-follow play strategies focus on the four key skills of visualizing, imitation, mirroring and turn-taking.

The book is illustrated throughout with photographs, and includes a questionnaire for observing and assessing play interventions as an appendix. The authors combine an accessible developmental approach with practical tried-and-tested play strategies. Autism and Play will enable parents to nurture their children’s social and cognitive development, and will inform the practice of professionals working in close contact with children on the autistic spectrum.

Reviews:

Autism and Play provides an innovative and insightful account of play practice in a specialised area. It is a useful introductory reference for any parent or professional involved with children affected by autism and who are interested in developing further understanding of the rich and educative potential of play presents a complex subject simply and comprehensibly. It is an inspiring read. The value and dynamics implicit in interactive play are made refreshingly explicit. Highly recommendable.
