Good Autism Practice
This is an excellent book for practitioners, parents and carers and anyone else working with young people with an autism spectrum disorder. It is a well laid out, easily accessible introduction to social play development and a comprehensive assessment tool with matched appropriate interventions for each stage.

This book provides a structured approach to assessing and developing children's social play. There is a strong emphasis on intervention and the ` ideas and templates' section is especially useful. The pages are easily photocopiable and user friendly. There are also lots of references to recent research findings. This book would be particularly useful for SLTs,psychologists and teachers/childcare staff working closely with parents.

Chris White, a speech and language therapist has performed great service by producing this excellent and very practical book... I would strongly recommend it to all educational psychologists. It is clear that this book has been well designed and researched.
This practical resource is designed for assessing the development of social skills by three-to 13-year-olds. The focus of the book is on children with autistic spectrum disorders or difficulties with social interaction and it is divided into three main sections: guidance; assessment; and intervention. Each section provides information on significance of social skills and the recording of children's development.
