Children on the Autism Spectrum typically have problems in understanding social rules that others take for granted. This card game has three decks that help kids learn about rules in the classroom, in the community, and with friends. Each card gives an example of a social rule, and then asks players a question of how to best behave in a social situation. The game was developed by Lawrence E. Shapiro, Ph.D., a nationally recognized author and parenting expert.
This game will be most helpful when played with an adult and two or more children. Adults can be very helpful in being good role models and in making kids feel comfortable in talking about their feelings. It is important to remember that it takes children a long time to learn new social rules, and new behaviors must be practiced and reinforced in social settings. For kids ages 6-12.
