Product Overview

If you are the parent of a child with autism or Asperger syndrome, you may feel that involvement in the community is not possible for your family. This book sets out to change that, with a rich and varied menu of suggestions for how you can take a full part in community life and support the strengths and interests of your child at the same time.

Get Out, Explore, and Have Fun! is your guide to what's out there, how to find it, and how to make it work for your family. It includes hints and tips for involving your family in the right community activities, from sports to science; information on museums, arts organizations and science institutions as venues for enjoyable and enriching days out for the family; and resources and ideas to help your child build on their strengths, interests, and preferred learning styles. Handouts about autism and Asperger syndrome are also included, as well as suggestions about how organizations and institutions can successfully include children on the spectrum in their activities.

This book will open the door to community inclusion, creative exploration, and social learning, and is a must-read for any parent of a child on the autism spectrum.
