Great Resource for encouraging Social Interaction
on 14 March 2010
This book is a great resource for professionals or parents working with children identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Sensory Processing Disorder.
It is an easy read and has a lot of fun ideas to help motivate children to socially connect. It is a helpful resource book for those practising RDI, Floortime, Son-Rise, and other interventions like these which focus on social interaction.
Instead of looking at the children from a "label" perspective, Barbara looks at them as children, and gives some valuable ways in to encourage social interaction which is so hard and gives a way at the same time to build skills such as fine and gross motor,and language. She is very in tune with the child's world and has a very great understanding of their perceptual strengths and difficulties.
