This step by step “How to” manual has instructions, explanations, examples, games and cards that attack language weaknesses common to children with pervasive developmental disorders aged kindergarten through teen years. Visual learners tend to benefit the most from this book which includes concepts such as social language, general knowledge, grammar and syntax, functional knowledge, written expression, and language-based academic concepts. This book should be introduced once the child has learned one and two word sentences, has some basic vocabulary, and can answer simple questions from a picture book. Pp. 410.
