Social play is about relating to others, playing and making friends - all of which are key elements of social inclusion, adjustment and well-being. The Social Play Record is a practical resource for assessing and developing social play in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) or difficulties with social interaction. This toolkit is designed to be used collaboratively with children, parents, carers and practitioners. It is suitable for assessing children of all learning abilities and stages of development, from early infancy to adolescence, and includes photocopiable materials, ideas for games and exercises. The toolkit is divided into three sections: the assessment section, for recording stages of social play and key abilities, such as independent and peer play, friendship and advanced group skills; the guidance section, which also gives information on what constitutes social play, its significance, development and how to address social interaction difficulties; the intervention section, which gives step-by-step directions for developing key social play skills.
