Targeted towards preschool and kindergarten-aged children, this book focuses on play skills, the language of social skills, understanding another person’s perspective and functioning in an inclusive classroom. The authors describe ABA, how children with autism develop social skills differently, and how ABA teaching tools work.
Using the concrete ABA method, parents can teach children how to pretend play, use toys appropriately, use conventional responses and initiate social interaction with their peers. This is a practical and accessible guide that offers easy-to-understand activities that parents and teachers can use to help students become more socially adept.
