Helping children with autism become more social : 76 ways to use narrative play by Ann E Densmore( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Autism has been identified as the fastest growing, serious developmental disability in the United States, where nearly 2 million people are affected. One of the most frustrating aspects of autism and similar disorders is that affected children affected do not interact with others and often seem unaware of the people and the environment around them. Therapist Densmore takes us with her as she works in a remarkable program she has developed to lead such children into the social world. Allowing readers to look over her shoulder during sessions, Densmore explains Narrative Play, her approach to inspiring social contact. The work includes interviews with parents of children with autism and will be of wide interest to professionals, teachers, parents, and family members who can use the approach to help a child move into the social world. The book, and the theory it promulgates, will also interest students of psychology, special education, pediatrics, neurology, and speech. Autism has now reached epidemic proportions. It has been identified as the fastest growing, serious developmental disability in the United States, where nearly 2 million people are affected. For parents, therapists, and teachers, one of the most frustrating aspects of autism and similar disorders is that children affected are not social. They do not interact with others-even parents and siblings-and often seem unaware of the people and environment around them. In this work, therapist Ann E. Densmore takes us with her as she works with children with autism in a remarkable program she has developed to lead such children into the social world. They travel to farms, ponds, playgrounds, and other natural settings where they interact with peers and siblings, and with the novel therapist whose play therapy has brought remarkable results for many children. Using a conversational style that allows readers to look over her shoulder during sessions, Densmore explains her approach to inspiring social contact, Narrative Play. A child moves through four stages in this approach, finally combining language, play and narrative skills to interact with others. The work includes interviews with parents of children with autism, and will be of wide interest to professionals, teachers, parents, and family members who can use this approach to help a child move into the social world. This work, and the theory it promulgates will also interest students of psychology, special education, pediatrics, neurology, and speech. Provides ways for professionals, therapists, teachers, parents and peers to help children with social-language and emotional disabilities-particularly autism-to become more social

Language intervention with school-aged children : conversation, narrative, and text by Rita C Naremore( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assessment and treatment of school-age language disorders : a resource manual by Rita C Naremore( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a practical compendium of assessment instruments and intervention ideas for school-based speech-language pathologists who are eager to take their practice beyond traditional language tests and caseload concerns. The manual focuses on three areas of language where language-impaired children in elementary school need particular help: phonological awareness, narrative skills, and advanced literacy skills (identifying and stating the main idea, for example). Inside, the reader will find non-standardized assessment tasks, sample intervention activities, sample goals and objectives, and sample lesson plans. These tools provide a framework onto which the clinician can graft activities and materials appropriate for individual children. This is a practical, reality-based book of assessment tasks and intervention ideas. It will also provide ideas for helping children who lack these abilities, for writing appropriate goals and objectives and for sharing information about the child's progress with teachers and parents."--Jacket
