Full Description:   

These three books (Ages 3-5, Ages 5-11, Ages 11-16; each sold seperately) include a short easy-to-read theoretical background to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) focusing on the underlying impairment and their impact on sensory processing, motor development, play, language and communication skills, emotional development and behaviour for the relevant age group. This book is for ages 5-11.

Each developmental area is intrinsically linked and progress in one aspect of development is dependent on progress in another so a multi-disciplinary approach is essential. All the books examine the role of various individual professionals whilst emphasising the need to develop a multi-disciplinary approach to groupwork providing practical advice and photocopiable resources to enable readers to:

  • assess individual needs
  • Organize groups (including group members, venue and transport)
  • set indivdual group targets
  • plan group sessions (examples of activities for each developmental area are provided
  • evaluate progress

    Each book offers ideas for developing good team work, including peer review, and working towards a trans-disciplinary approach where professions can step into each other's roles where appropriate.
