Play & Imagination in Children with Autism

Based on award-winning research, this volume offers new hope for children with autism by shedding light on theory and practice. It goes beyond the usual autism literature by including what is known about play within typical populations. Part One, Perspectives on Autism and Play, examines the complex problems children with autism experience in reciprocal social interaction, communication and imagination. Part Two, Passage to Play Culture, presents ethnographic case portraits of three children with autism as they overcome obstacles to enter into the play culture of their peers.
