Verdict: As the author lives and works in the UK, the list of therapeutic organizations is not useful for readers in the United States. Yet the activitites for toddlers through early school-age children are very useful. Recommended for larger public libraries with developmental disability collections. Background: As a parent of a young child with autism and a sensory art and communication tutor for adults with learning disabilities, Moor understands how parents of children with an autism-spectrum diagnosis are often at a loss as to how to begin gaining their child's attention and help them learn necessary life skills. Her valuable how-to book breaks down into small segments activities and play scenarios that will engross children and encourage them to learn and build on each simple skill. Each chapter is filled with activities based on a theme such as art, music, and outdoor play as well as toys, computers, and turn taking. Besides ideas for how and what to play with your child, Moor provides ideas for making your own resources using your computer and digital camera to create personalized activities.--Lisa M.
