    Terrific post!! I am a new subscriber, and will look forward to your blog. By the way, if you are still thinking about how to help on the playground, a (brilliant) SLP that I work with uses an acronym “PLAY” to remind kids of the sequential steps. We featured it on our newsletter in March of 2011. Here’s a direct link If the “bots” disable the link, you can go to Pacific Coast Speech dot com with no spaces, and you will see it. Hope it’s helpful – she likes it because you can “wave” the hang loose sign from across the playground at a lost kid to cue them and no one is the wiser. Have a great day!

  2. This article broke my heart…just visualizing those students alone on the playground and in the lunchroom – a scene all too familiar to those working with students with Autism. But, it gave me hope and a new direction re: intervention. THanks for the valuable suggestions.

  3. I loved this post! Great ideas to work from the social skills in our rooms to social competency outside of speech, thanks for sharing!

  5. Loved this post! Generalizing social skills is one of the hardest tasks! Would you mind sharing the PowerPoint you put together?
