Includes Play-Based Therapy and Sensory Processing Disorder Programs and Professor Barry Carpenter’s Girls’ and Autism book.
Drawing on the latest research findings, Barry Carpenter’s Girls’ and Autism considers why girls have historically been overlooked by traditional diagnostic approaches, identifying behaviours that may be particular to girls, and exploring the ‘camouflaging’ that can make the diagnosis of autistic girls more difficult. This much-needed text will provide parents, teachers and other professionals with essential information to help them support and teach autistic girls more effectively.
Included in the pack are practical resources utilising play-based interventions with children on the autism spectrum, illustrated worksheets, charts and handouts and a multi-sensory enrichment program to nurture relationships, measure progress, reduce child stress, address challenging behaviours and promote self-regulation.
The Autism Activities Pack includes:
Girls and Autism - Often thought of as a predominantly ‘male’ disorder, autism has long gone unidentified, unnoticed and unsupported in girls – sometimes with devastating consequences for their social and mental well-being. As current research reveals a much more balanced male-to-female ratio in autism, this book provides crucial insight into autistic girls’ experiences, helping professionals to recognise, understand, support and teach them effectively.
Play-Based Interventions for Children and Adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorders - Explores the most recognised, researched, and practical methods for using play therapy with the increasing number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), and shows clinicians how to integrate these methods into their practices.
Social and Emotional Development in Early Intervention - A groundbreaking resource for the field of early intervention. Full of clear, straightforward steps, guiding principles and useful techniques backed by neuroscience and research that provides practical methods so that all childhood providers can better support the social and emotional lives of children and families.
Hands-on Activities for Children with Autism & Sensory Disorders - Innovative, practical and fun activities for children with autism and sensory disorders. Provides nearly 200 activities and interventions to help children with their sensory needs. This highly detailed, illustrated and accessible guide is a rich resource for any therapist, teacher or parent.
