"Early diagnosis and early intervention are both important factors in the lifelong success of those diagnosed. Quinn at School is based on vignettes that reflect the social challenges (interacting with classmates, greeting teachers, playground politics, art class, library visits, etc.) preschool and kindergarten children with social deficiencies face each school day. Many children, not just those with an autism spectrum disorder, have difficulty initiating or sustaining social contact, and this highly visual picture book helps children do just that, using examples from environments and situations they are familiar with. In addition to being used as a lap book, Quinn at School comes with a free CD that includes the book in a digital PDF format, which allows children to advance the pages on a computer, keeping them highly engaged and making the resource dually effective." - PUBLISHERS WEBSITE
Quinn at school is packed with sound advice for children who are not used to the schooling situation. The clear simple illustrations are excellent accompaniment to all aspects of social behaviour within the classroom.
Rick Warren offers children a choice of behaviour alternatives for situations they will most likely meet. He begins with one alternative suggestion and then gradually builds it up to a combination of alternatives, going from the cool choice, to the cooler and ending up with the coolest!
This delightful, fun resource can be used for school classroom groups, at home with the family or in a one to one situation.
