Playing it Right! Social Skills Activities for Parents and Teachers of Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Including Asperger Syndrome and Autism

This book is EXACTLY what I was looking for! My 7.5 year old son is very high functioning autism spectrum disorder (PDD-NOS) and is cognitively very bright, but he does have difficulties managing his anger, and social skills (understanding the position of others, unwritten social rules) do not come naturally to him. He needs to be taught and practise these skills.

Whereas many books talk about the reasons that kids in the ASD have difficulties with these issues and give background and theories, and talk about things these kids need to be taught, this book actually gives you specific lesson plans for 20 specific social issues that your child may have. The lesson plans are simple, straightforward, short, child-friendly and very effective. The lessons are very interactive and include a short craft where the child is involved to facilitate understanding. They are very visual (child-friendly), very sensory and many include a "reminder card" that the child can make to refer to in their pocket or have posted in a convenient space. A list of things that you need to complete the lesson is at the very start of the lesson.

The book starts off with a social skills checklist of 20 social issues so that you can check off the specific social skills that your child needs to learn / practice and then directs you directly to the specific lesson plan to work on that skill. I found that 16/20 pertained to my child in one way or another. My son is 7.5, but I think this book would be very suitable for high functioning children as young as 4 and as old as 9 or 10.

This book is set up to use over and over again with completed examples of the work sheets in the lesson plan and then blank templates in the back. I have recently bought a second copy of this book for my son's school.

If you have to buy one book to work on social skills with an ASD child, I would highly recommend this one.
