This accessible and practical photocopiable resource is brimming with ideas and guidance for motivating children with autism spectrum disorder or other communication difficulties. The clear and user-friendly format of the book enables quick access to over 300 practical games and activities for using everyday toys and games in a range of settings throughout the day.

For example, if your child likes to pop bubbles with their fingers, perhaps they would also enjoy counting bubbles? Or catching bubbles on a wand, stomping bubbles with their feet or even playing bubble volleyball. The many innovative ideas in the book have developed through over 40 years of clinical and educational experience, and are designed to be fun for both the adult and the child. All the resources mentioned in this book are readily available and can be utilized to develop all levels of communication, from reaching to using pictures to communicate, to increasing the length of the child's verbal communication. Motivate to Communicate! is perfect for supporting professionals, parents and care givers to motivate and maintain motivation with this challenging group.
