An easy-to-use resource for professionals, this book provides fun and practical ideas to help motivate and extend communication and play skills in children with autism with the support of pictures. The book describes how picture scripts can help facilitate play and learning and provides 40 photocopiable scripts across a range of different activities such as drawing, cooking, using construction toys, imaginative play, arts and crafts, and social games. Tasks are presented in small manageable step-by-step picture sequences and support a range of skills including following instructions, increasing independence, comprehension, story-telling and choice-making.

This volume is therefore ideal for special education teachers, early years practitioners, speech and language therapists, and occupational therapists, this will be an excellent tool for any classroom or therapy setting.
