The Art of Guiding Children's Socialization and Imagination
Many children on the autism spectrum spend inordinate amounts of time alone pursuing repetitive and unimaginative activities. Without appropriate intervention, they are especially vulnerable to being excluded from their peer group and leading impoverished play lives. This practical guide 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.
