This review critiqued ‘L. LeComer, The Socially Included Child: A Parent’s Guide to Successful Playdates, Recreation, and Family Events for Children with Autism’. New York, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2009, 230 pp., ISBN 978-0-425-22965-1, $14.00 (paper)’. The book was found to be useful for parents as a means of training them to be more aware of their child’s behaviour leading up to challenging behaviours. However, the recommendations for behaviour management are based on explaining all challenging behaviour as a hypersensitivity to a particular aspect of the child’s environment.
