An excellent resource for parents, teachers and therapists that work with children with autism disorders or aspergers. This book is full of lots of good activity ideas that are not only fun to do, but also help with building self esteem, improving physical and social skills as well as motor skills. There is a wide range of different activities to cater for different environments, ages and abilities of children. Overall it's a good book to have on hand when you need to get new ideas for activities.
