Product description

Remove our emotional bonds with family, colleagues and friends and few of us would want to go on living. Yet establishing and maintaining such bonds is particularly difficult for people on the autism spectrum. This volume contains over 200 enjoyable and stimulating activities and exercises ranging over the entire gamut of social and emotional development, and is applicable to anyone, regardless of diagnosis, but will be particularly valuable for those on the autism spectrum. Activities can be undertaken independently, or with a teacher or therapist, and a full schema for the evaluation of progress and objectives is included. A companion website, free to purchasers provides a wealth of further information and support.

Review quote

All the activities are provided in a step-by-step manner that a parent can implement in a fun way. I've been using the beginning stages with my daughter for a coupla weeks now for up to an hour a day and she seems to thoroughly enjoy the interaction, long term benefits are yet to be seen but look promising. -- Peach
