Parents and teachers will appreciate the practical advice this book offers in preparing individuals with autism to participate in their community. The book is divided into three parts-- a tool kit, a blueprint of what you plan to do while you are out and about, and a helpful index with various supports for easy access.
This book will help you and your child to create a toolbox of helpful tools that can be used to connect to the community including a waiting plan, communication skills, social cues, visual supports, and much more. It also helps kids to learn how to interact with their peers and moderate their own behavior.
Next, you will create an individualized blueprint for your community outing in which you apply the various strategies discussed.
With a list of support "tools" ready in your mental toolbox and a well thought out plan, you will be able to help the autistic people you work with have success as they move out and about in their communities.
