Pierrette and I appreciate when the authors we meet through our Special Needs Book Review site keep in touch. One amazing young woman we have met is Tali Field Berman, co-author of Play to Grow! Over 200 Games Designed to Help Your Special Child Develop Fundamental Social Skills. In my review of Play to Grow! I wrote that parents and team members of children on the autism spectrum or with other developmental delays should all have this book by Tali Field Berman and Abby Rappaport.
Tali Field Berman and Abby Rappaport have compiled a simple, user-friendly, spiral
bound manual with 201 fun games to be played right in your home. The games are fun for any child. Adaptions/variations are given so you can customize the games to fit your child’s needs and interests. Read the complete review here.
We then had the pleasure of interviewing Tali F. Berman. Read the complete interview here. Here is part of her interesting, informative responses.
Lorna: The games you have featured in Play to Grow! Over 200 Games Designed to Help Your Special Child Develop Social Skills were designed to help a special child develop fundamental social skills. When someone asks, “What is your book about? Will the games help my child?” what do you answer?
<<Tali Field Berman: I would say that this book is about how to optimize your child’s growth through fun, simple to prepare and engaging games. It is about teaching the key ingredients in creating games that will be effective for your child so you can develop as many as you want, plus, of course, it gives you 201 game ideas that you can implement right away.
