Format: Paperback
"101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger's, and Sensory Processing Disorders" is a compendium of practical games, exercises, and activities specially chosen or designed to enhance sensory integration and development in children with sensory processing disorders. The games are interactive, easy stimulating, and fun. Best of all, they will help the child to grow, learn social skills, and communicate. The model used by author Tara Delaney (M.S., OTR) is partially described as "Using three-dimensional learning as a way of imprinting preacademic and academic concepts in your child's repertoire of information will increase your child's opportunity for success in the classroom (p.138)." The book is divided into 10 chapters covering such areas as engagement, sensory development, gross and fine motor skills, communication, social sense, school readiness, home activities, outdoor activities, and adapting brand-name games. All the play-game activities are presented in a compact format that highlights aspects including whether the game is indoor/outdoor, equipment, how (first and second levels), purpose, and why. An excellent explanation of the Brain Library in the introduction explains the different areas of the brain catalogued for different types of learning, and how best to access them. Fundamental to Delaney's teaching philosophy is the discovery that "play has (an infinite) power to teach, develop, and connect children to the world (p. viii)." "101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger's, and Sensory Processing Disorders" is an excellent resource for parents, teachers, and caretakers of children with sensory processing disorders.

My nephew was diagnosed on the autism spectrum a few years ago, and I've been trying to find ways to play with him ever since. This book contains plenty of clearly explained games and activities that are fun for me and my nephew. I like that the book is organized by developmental area, too. For example, my nephew's occupational therapist and teacher told our family that he needs to work on fine motor skills, so I just turned to that chapter of the book for inspiration!

I hope this book can help you as much as it helped me. There's a lot of good stuff in here for $12.

This books has great activities for any typical child, but not for kids who are non-verbal or very low in their communication skills.

This is a nice book but there were not a lot of games under each section. I would recommend it more for home use.

Great job by Tara Delaney for putting together such a great play-based book. Many parents, and professionals, are often at a loss for ideas when looking for purposeful ways to interact with children with ASD and other related disorders. I like the way the author broke down activities by sensory development, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, communication, social sense, school ready, home activities, and outdoor activities. A great addition was how she dedicated chapter on adapting brand-name games... so that a child could play traditional games in a modified way. My review would have been higher, but I feel the book lacks ideas for those on the spectrum with more severe, cognitive challenges. These parents, including myself, are looking for similar activities, but are often disappointed when the child is not an assumed level of understanding or functioning. So, as a result there is a great loss of interactive play in the home/social environments for these families. If Ms. Delaney took on this challenge in authoring another book of this caliber for that population, it would get 5 stars from me!

Obviously this book also bases its therapy on Game-Playing, however the emphasis is more on “Motor Learning”, rather than Socialising, which if this emphasis is appropriate for your Child, would make this book the one to get first.
The Chapter 6 Social Sense games are more in keeping with the games for teaching mildly autistic children better socialising, and some of them are excellent, and occasionally (importantly) include waiting for, and prompting Response.
The Games in this book are more systematically and clearly set out that with other books available, which means it is more instantly accessible. Each Game describes the physical and social outcomes that are being aimed for in the Game.
Definitely a worthwhile book, which I have recommended on my site, [...]

This book has been a big help to me since I am homeschooling my son who has moderate autism. Sometimes it is hard to come up with ideas for him since he doesn't really "play" with anything and is non-verbal. This book is educational for a parent/caregiver/teacher, as well as giving ideas for occupational games and activities.

Book has great ideas in it - sort of helps take pressure off of you trying to come up with things on your own. This is good resource for parents that find themselves frustrated and wanting to provide the best for their kids. Would recommend this to al with special needs kids - especially sensory kids!
