Teaching Playskills to Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder
Teaching Playskills is a comprehensive manual encompassing the many aspects of play and how they can be incorporated into the lives of children with developmental delays. Written accessibly and intimately, Dr. Smith gives both parents and professionals a concrete look into the dynamic world of play and how it affects and applies to our exceptional children. The guide begins by defining play and delineating methods of developing and teaching playskills. It addresses everything from building toys to games and music, to sensory play as well as imaginative play. The final chapters deal with the important yet challenging aspects of peer interactions and the dynamics of playgroups for preschool and school-aged children.
