Product Description

From the Back Cover

Early Intervention Games

Children identified with Autism Spectrum or Sensory Processing Disorders are often perceived as needing to be "fixed." However, recent research suggests that what we need to do instead is play with them and help them find the joy in interacting with others. In Early Intervention Games, expert occupational therapist Barbara Sher provides a wide selection of fun and novel games to do at home or in the classroom, including a variety of games to play in water. This indispensable resource can help these unique children enhance and increase their social, motor, and sensory skills. Each game explains the lessons playfully learned and ways of modifying the games so that everyone, regardless of skill level and sensibility, can play along.

Neuroscientists now know that playing is a profound biological process that shapes and enlarges the brain; but from the children's view, it just feels good to have fun. Enjoy the positive interaction with the children in your life that you'll discover in Early Intervention Games.

Praise for Early Intervention Games

"Early Intervention Games brims with sparkling ideas to help children learn the pleasures of engaging in back and forth play. Barbara's warm advice and cool activities invite us to dive right in!"
Carol Kranowitz, author of The Out-of-Sync Child

"Barbara Sher is gifted in her ability to weave therapy into play while deeply respecting the strengths and uniqueness of each child. In this book, she artfully explains how everyone can support challenged children through brilliantly creative yet practical, low-budget games. Her gentle, welcoming ways pull out the best in children as she shows us how to playfully play."
Mary Sue Williams, co-author of How Does Your Engine Run? Alert Program for Self-Regulation

"Early Intervention Games takes a unique approach with its emphasis on playful activities. Barbara Sher's games and ideas are simple, fun, and wonderful tools for therapists working with children who have Sensory Processing or Autism Spectrum Disorders."
Dr. Lucy Jane Miller Ph.D., OTR, executive director, Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation and author of Sensational Kids

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lorraine Fankhanel on Nov. 29 2009
Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved this book, although it states for pre-school ages, I have played most of the games with our children 9 and 7 and they loved them all! What is wonderful is that today teachers are in overload with what is on their plates and when a parent or a specialist comes in talking that their children need sensory strategies, that is enough to overwhelm any teacher as it is just one more thing being put onto them. When we learn that applying sensory strategies to any child improves academics as the research is showing, and then add the critical piece that our world is so quickly forgetting is childhood play, Barbara's book is bringing both play and sensory strategies together, it is a win-win for all.

This book is a good introduction to recreational/ occupational therapy. I bought this book to help give me ideas on what to play with non-verbal kids with autism. And the book certainly serves that function.

I work as a behavior interventionist and found this book is full of amazing ideas to get the kids working together. Easy to read and laid out well to make it easy to find an activity right for your group.

This book has fun ideas for games with kids in the spectrum but most of them require more kids to be played. Still, it has many good ideas.
