Developing Leisure Time Skills for Persons with Autism: Structured Playtime Activities[1ST EDITION]
Author(s): Phyllis Coyne, Colleen Nyberg, Mary Lou Vandenburg
Free time should be part of the day that all kids look forward to. But for many children on the autism spectrum, it can be a painfully unstructured part of the day that causes anxiety and fear.
This book provides comprehensive, structured strategies to help adults introduce meaningful activities to ASD children, which they can practice at school or at home. The first half of the book provides forms and charts that will help adults assess the child’s sensory needs, select age-appropriate activities, and then determine level of interest in specific activities. The second half provides numerous “Activity Cards" for going to the park, playing games, listening to music, and many more!
This detailed guide also covers:
- The components of leisure development
- Assessing leisure patterns, skills, and preferences
- Activities that require minimal supervision
- Community activities
- Ongoing assessment
- And more!
