The activities will help the young person identify their own and others’ comfort and enjoyment range for gestures, actions and words of affection. They will also learn the variety of appropriate ways they can express liking or loving someone, helping them to strengthen friendships and relationships.

This book will be an invaluable resource for professionals supporting a child with an ASD.
