Building Early Social Communication Skills in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Other Social Communication Difficulties

Put Pretending into Your Child’s Play is the third booklet in the Make Play R.O.C.K.™ Booklet Series for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder and other communication difficulties.

This booklet offers practical, research-based guidance for building children’s pretend play skills – skills that are closely linked with the development of language, social, and emotional skills.

Easy-to-use checklists help identify the child’s next step in pretend play, while concrete examples and “Pretend Play Plan” templates help parents and professionals plan how they’ll help the child move to the next step.

This booklet is recommended for use with children who have already developed functional play skills, and who are starting to develop joint attention.

Make Play R.O.C.K.™ Booklet Series

If you have a young child with autism, you may have noticed that he has difficulty learning to play. His play may be less flexible or creative than that of other children, and it may rarely involve other people.

The Make Play R.O.C.K.™ booklet series gives you practical, research-based strategies for expanding your child’s play skills during everyday play activities. You’ll learn powerful ways to get involved in your child’s play and help him learn while having fun together. After all, fun is what play is all about!


Why is Play So Important?

Your child learns something from every play experience. When he picks up a toy train and spins its wheels, he learns that he can make things happen. When he hears you say, “That train’s wheels go round and round”, he discovers that objects and actions have names. And when he holds a toy stethoscope to his sister’s chest, pretending to be a doctor, he has a chance to experience what it feels like to be someone else.

Play skills are linked to the development of a variety of other abilities, including social skillsvocabularylanguage skills, and even how to solve problems. When you help your child learn to play, you increase his opportunities to learn about himself and the world around him, and you help him discover how much fun it is to play and interact with other people.

 data-src=Does Your Child Have Difficulty with Play?

Think about how your child plays now and answer these questions:

  • Does your child look like he’s having fun when he plays (does he laugh and smile)?
  • Does your child look at you or talk to you when he plays with a toy?
  • Does your child copy what you do with toys?
  • Does your child play with a variety of toys?
  • Does your child play in different ways with the same toy (for example, build a tower with his blocks and pretend a block is a ball or a car)?
  • Does your child like to play with other children?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, your child might be missing out on important learning opportunities. Click on the booklets in the Make Play R.O.C.K. series below to find out more about how they can help:
