101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger’s, and Sensory Processing Disorders

For the hundreds of thousands of children with Autism, Asperger’s, and Sensory Processing Disorders, developmental breakthroughs can come from an unlikely but clinically proven source: play! This fantastic game and activity book is specifically intended for kids on the spectrum and is overflowing with parent-tested and expert-approved ways to help children connect with the world around them. Inventive and practical games and activities stimulate and improve motor functions, social skills, and cognitive development.

Parents will have fun and learn, too, as Tara clearly explains how and why the games and activities help their kids. Each game includes a list of necessary supplies and easy-to-follow steps. With a parent’s helping hand, kids on the autism spectrum can engage in play and learn how to:


  • Make eye contact and identify their family members and friends with "People Bingo" (read excerpt)
  • Count and improve their tactile sense with "Back Writer" (read excerpt)
  • Draw like a master and develop fine motor skills with "Avant Garde Painter" (read excerpt)

Not to worry: These are not strenuous or boring exercises disguised as "games". In fact, much of the book’s content builds upon the enjoyable activities everyone already loves, such as building sand castles, blowing bubbles, jumping on trampolines, playing on bean bags, constructing forts, drawing with chalk, having picnics, and going on hikes. Some games integrate a child’s favorite toy (a great motivator for a reluctant participant), and there are even creative ideas for making everyday activities—such as helping with the laundry—opportunities for learning and development.

Indoors, outdoors, on field trips, solo or with friends—there are activities for every occasion and setting. The book is organized by developmental area, such as sensory, communication, and social skills, so mom or dad can pick the activities that address their child’s greatest needs. Now, let’s play!

The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer Book

The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer Book

Children with Sensory Processing Disorder (or SPD) misinterpret everyday sensory information, such as touch, sound, and movement, which can lead to behavioral problems, difficulties with coordination, and other issues. This straightforward, authoritative book provides answers to the most pressing questions parents are asking about SPD, and dispels confusion in the face of the overwhelming amount of misleading and often times conflicting information.

Tara is the ideal author of The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer Book. She has specialized in Sensory Processing Disorders in her occupational therapy practice for more than a decade, and she has personally dealt with—and overcome—the disorder as a parent. Based on her extensive experience, she has answered more than 250 of the most pressing and relevant questions that parents have, such as:

  • What is Sensory Processing Disorder?
  • Do sensory processing difficulties affect social skills?
  • Are sensory processing difficulties evident in infants?
  • Is Sensory Processing Disorder a sign of autism?
  • What is sensory integration therapy?
  • How can SPD be mistaken for ADHD?

Written in an easy to read format, with a friendly and approachable tone, The Sensory Processing Disorder Answer Book helps parents better understand their child, and develop a plan for their social and academic success.
