©2001. By Melinda Smith, M.D. As a physician and the parent of a son with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), the author soon discovered that there were few written resources available to help her teach play skills to a child with developmental delays. Through her extensive research and personal experiences with her son, she realized that she had a wealth of information to offer other parents of children with ASD. This manual was written for parents of preschool and early school age children, and it contains valuable information in the following areas: teaching play skills; imitative play; manipulatives and building; toy play; pretend play; games; music; sensory and physical play; water and sand play; arts and crafts; play dates and peer interaction; play groups; and play activities of school age children. Learning play skills is critical for every child's development, and this book is a highly recommended resource. (Softcover; 174 pages.)
