"Individuals with developmental disabilities are finally starting to receive the public and professional attention they need and deserve. And new and better therapies are being devised that address one of their biggest deficits--social skills. Densmore adds her approach, outlining a play-therapy technique she has developed over 30 years of practice. This technique joins a growing body of related therapies, including Stanley Greenspan's trademarked Floortime; Barry Prizant's social communication, emotional regulation, and transactional support model (SCERTS); Steven Gutstein's Relationship Developmental Intervention; and Carol Gray's Social Stories (also trademarked). Densmore contrasts her model with structured, research-based models (e.g., applied behavioral analysis), arguing that one size does not fit all children and that these methods can sometimes work together or sequentially. This book reads like an annotated diary into the arduous and lengthy process of trying to expand and elaborate on individuals' ability to relate to others…. Recommended. Professionals and professionals in training."
