When children have fun with a product, they will want to use it over and over again - Dr. Lawrence Shapiro, founder, Childswork/Childsplay
(PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Childswork/Childsplay is a leading publisher of play therapy resources that helps children with common emotional, social, and behavioral problems. This month the catalog will feature eight new products designed to help children on the Autism Spectrum learn social skills in a fun and engaging matter.
The company will introduce three sets of Social Story Cards that help children pay attention to social cues. Its three new Hidden Rules card games help children learn important social rules by playing familiar card games like Go Fish and Crazy Eights. Two new Social Comic Books are designed to teach children how to have socially appropriate conversations and how to deal with anxiety associated with social situations.
“Our products always take a ‘best practices’ approach to helping children and then add an element of play,” explains Dr. Lawrence Shapiro, the company’s president and founder. He explains, “When children have fun with a product, they will want to use it over and over again, and that kind of repetition is the key ingredient to learning new social and behavioral skills.”
The company publishes many types of educational materials, including board games, card games, workbooks, puzzles, posters and more, all designed to help children with common emotional problems. The products address a wide variety of problems, including ADHD, divorce, bullying, classroom behavior, and teen problems. The catalog is published twice a year, and all products are also available at the company’s website, Childswork.com.
