Created by Lawrence E. Shapiro Ph.D. Hidden Rules is the term used to describe rules and behaviours that most people know without ever being taught. But some children, particularly children on the Autism Spectrum, seem to be unaware of these rules and the way that they influence social acceptance. Each of these card games presents a different set of rules, which can be reviewed individually (like flash cards) or used in a simple and fun game. Each game is for 2-8 players.
