The Socially Included Child: A Parent's Guide to Successful Play dates, Recreation, and Family Events for Children with Autism by Laurie LeComber, M. Ed.

One of my personal favorite books so far about Autism, and it is such a help with such basics that have the parents of Autistic children pulling out their hair trying to figure it out! Being a grandmother to an eight year old grandson with Autism, I know how tricky it can get at family gatherings! The noise alone sends Jordon running with his hands covering his ears. And he tends to get very hectic and his adrenaline shoots right off the Richter scale. So this book was a Godsend for me and my family. Well done!

From her decades of work in educating children with autism, Laurie
LeComer, M. Ed. knows the current information available for parents on
socially including their kids with autism is perhaps too focused on
skills that can take months or even years to develop, rather than how
they can simply play and interact. Sadly, many parents are left with a
sense that their children cannot be included until they display
appropriate language and educational skills. This holiday season, many
parents may sadly feel their child cannot participate or interact as
much as they would like.

In the book it explains how to:

Identify the many different expectations and issues that affect
social success.

Use the exciting new tool, the I.D.E.A.L. system, which will
help them preview, plan, and carry out social activities.

Introduce an activity to their child, determine the tasks
involved, evaluate expectations, and list the components of activities
visually.

Facilitate social events (using I.D.E.A.L.): birthday parties,
play dates, and family events.

Author of the new book THE SOCIALLY INCLUDED CHILD, Laurie
LeComer is a special educator, inclusion facilitator, and evaluator of
children. She has been interviewed on NPR, numerous local and regional
news and interest programs, and has been quoted in some of the most
widely read magazines in the country.
OCARO
This book is very thorough, and does a good job of laying out a step by step plan for going on outings with children who are on the more severely to profoundly disabled end of the spectrum. Some of the techniques can be modified for higher functioning children, however for the most part these children are ignored in this book.

My only other concern is that these techniques are very ambitious. The time and effort put into planning activities is very great, and I fear that if parents who have more mild to moderately disabled children, and perhaps even some severely disabled children, try to implement them they will be discouraged from taking their children on outings. If the child I bought this book for were more disabled I doubt I would have the time to implement many of these techniques- I would have to hire a babysitter and spends several hours preparing for an outing. I suppose if you have a good support system it could work.

Having said that, many of the ideas are useful. Just be mindful to modify them for your situation.
