Embracing Play: Teaching Your Child with Autism
(XIN Baldi 2000DVD)
This DVD is good for parents with a newly diagnosed child, because it shows how to help the child learn how to play. Interactions between people and objects can be very difficult for a child with autism, so this video uses many examples between a parent or professional and a child to show how to teach play. They use a technique called Object Focused Play (developed by the Behavioral Intervention Association), and the activities are easy to replicate at home. 47 minutes.
