    The Games Lady does it again!

    Once again, Barbara Sher gifted us with a jam-packed collection of games for hours of purposeful fun, this time for children with social skills challenges. In this collection, each game is thoughtfully and lovingly designed to bring out the beautiful and often hidden side of our children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder).

    Whether used at home, in the classroom, in the therapy clinic or at camp, these games offer adults wonderful ways to help these children overcome social obstacles and build confidence from a very early age.

    "Early Intervention Games: Fun, Joyful Ways to Develop Social and Motor Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum or Sensory Processing Disorders" is an excellent resource for parents, teachers, Early Intervention Specialists and therapists alike.

    It's no wonder Barbara Sher is The Games Lady (www.gameslady.com). Thank you for sharing your creativity and love with all of us. Your book is a winner and I have been recommending it to my clients.
