If you’re new to autism, then this is the book for you. Activity Schedules for Children with Autism: Teaching Independent Behavior starts with a helpful, informative, and thorough overview of autism. It then goes on to clearly explain how to develop effective, well-tailored activity schedules and how to teach them to your child. It also includes vital tips on what not to do.
Although this book was written by two professionals with over 20 years of experience, it does not get caught up in complex technical jargon. Instead, it provides clear, step by step instructions that will help you teach autistic people how to make choices, build self-help skills, increase social skills, and much more. With mastery of each schedule, people with autism will continue to develop the vital skills they need for independence. Thorough yet also easy to understand, this is a great book for parents, teachers or therapists new to this subject.
