Don't you wish there was a "magic" formula for activities and games that...

- Your loved one on the autism spectrum actually wants to participate in?

- Develops their interactive attention span and socialization?

There is! Designed around common special interests enjoyed by autistic people, this book includes over 180 activities for families to do together to help strengthen relationships and develop social skills. Kate shows how seven magic ingredients for optimal game-playing can be applied to a range of themes, from trains and planes to household appliances, the human body to animals and insects, TV and film characters, and what's more, how you can introduce your loved one's favorite topics. She shares "Presto Chango" beliefs - the five mindsets you need to power activities - as well as how to understand the magic of timing and knowing when to start and stop an activity based on your loved one's cues.
