Many children on the autistic spectrum seem to be at a very early developmental stage in their play, which tends to be less spontaneous, exploratory and varied than that of other children. This handbook describes different play sequences which encourage the integration of social, emotional and cognitive development in autistic children. The easy-to-follow play strategies focus on the four key skills visualizing, imitation, mirroring and turn-taking. The book is illustrated throughout with photographs, and includes a questionnaire for observing and accessing play interventions. The authors combine an accessible developmental approach with practical tried-and-tested play strategies.

Circle time: for nursery, reception and Key Stage 1 children with ideas for PSHE and citizenship for children 3-8 years old

COLLINS, Margaret

2001    101 Pages    (Lucky Duck Publishing)

ISBN 10: 1873942532

Circle time is widely used as an approach which can help children to gain in confidence and self-esteem. However, most books about circle time are for older primary pupils and do not take sufficient account of social and language skills of younger pupils. This book is different as it focuses on the early years.

Learning through play is a well-established principle that underpins much educational practice, yet it is often overlooked in association with children with autistic spectrum disorders. This book considers the wide-ranging benefits of developing play and taking it into drama with these children.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to embark on creative and imaginative adventures. You can explore the environment through imaginative sculptures, models and detective work. You can find ways to recycle and reuse, create your own imaginative play spaces in Rocket Journey and On the Bus or travel the world in Passport Check. You can take turns and join with others in developing new skills and using all you senses. "Eco-ventures" offers a variety of exciting starting points for children of all ages and abilities to pick up and expand. The book has been written so that adults can develop the activities with children or children can use the book for ideas to develop themselves. All the activities have been successfully tried and tested with children aged 4-9 in various settings and we have found that the activities often spark children's imaginations to take the ideas further in their own way. The activities in Eco-ventures: are fun; can mostly be done with limited resources; are fully illustrated; describe what you need, how you can do it and where it can lead; can be used to explore particular areas of interest such as the environment, recycling, or the natural world; contain practical tips and flag health and safety points; provide opportunities for children to develop, play and learn at their own pace; include 'snapshots' of how other groups have experienced the activity; and include 'spotlights' to support adults in thinking about their approach to working with children in a play or childcare setting. This book is part of the "Can Do Series", an essential resource for all those who work with children from birth to 14 years in out of school playsettings including, childcare centres; drop in centres; after-school clubs; playschemes or playbuses; play centres; family centers, or in the home. Whether you are a childminder, playworker, family centre worker, day nursery assistant or manager you will find a rich source of ideas to help you create opportunities for play which are fun, inclusive and affordable.
