Each characteristic is then paired with a brief explanation, followed by a series of bulleted interventions. Interventions include strategies and supports that help children on the spectrum who have difficulty with abstract concepts and thoughts, difficulty understanding and regulating their behavior, and much more.

  9. Staying in the Game
    Staying in the Game
    $17.95

    “A survival manual for parents and professionals working with children with autism.” Ami Klin 

    Staying in the Game picks up where many social skills training programs leave off - with generalization. The book addresses this void by presenting a range of interventions aimed at promoting generalization of social skills by showing how to establish social situations that can be opportunities for generalization. The focus of Staying in the Game goes beyond just placing students in inclusion settings, to taking advantage of inclusion by facilitating the use of typical students to address generalization of social skills - one of the most profound challenges for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. With Staying in the Game, families and professionals who support a child with ASD have critical information that describes how to promote generalization of social skills to everyday experience.

By using a dry-erase marker, unique situations and solutions can be added and changed with the wipe of a paper towel, as the child masters a skill and grows.
