Happy to announce that the AutPlay Social Communication Card Game is now available! We have been working on the child and teen versions of this card game for several months. If you work with children or teens with Autism or any social skill/communication struggles, this game is perfect for you!
The SC Card Game is designed for children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder, social skill difficulties,and communication struggles. Neurotypical children and teen clients can benefit from playing the SC Card Game as well. The cards are designed to work on social skills,communication skills, and relationship development. The Card Game can also be used as an assessment tool and to help build rapport with clients. The card deck comprises four categories of cards: answer the question, top 3, what if, and complete the sentence. The SC Card Game comes with 100 cards, a carrying bag, one dice, and instructions on how to play three different games using the SC Cards. The SC Card Game can be ordered through the AutPlay Therapy website at www.autplaytherapy.com.
I recorded this video about a year ago with Liana Lowenstein. I had a lot of fun demonstrating these two techniques to use with children with Autism to help work on emotional regulation and social skills. Thanks Liana for doing this and I hope you all enjoy watching and trying these interventions.
