Giggle Time is a step-by-step program for parents, teachers and other professionals to help develop the non-verbal, verbal and social reciprocity skills of children with autism. It describes in accessible detail how to communicate with children with autism and gives clear instructions on "how to" techniques for developing language skills. Specifically addressing developmental delays, Giggle Time helps to lay the necessary framework for future language growth by turning the actions the child initiates into interactions with meaning. This is a user-friendly guide, packed full of fun and child-centered exercises that can be carried out at home or in the classroom.

Learning Disability Practice
This book would be a good source for those nurses who work with children in a school or day care setting. I feel that the book is generally aimed at the parents of children with autistic spectrum disorders or professionals that spend a lot of time with children. It would be a good idea for all children's wards to have a copy as it may help to enhance how staff communicate with children with autistic spectrum disorders if they are admitted to the ward.
