A research-based curriculum guiding instruction for children with and without disabilities, emphasizing social interaction skills and positive patterns of social behavior, using children's natural inclinations to play. Developed for use with three- to five-year-old children with disabilities who are enrolled in special, general preschool, or child care center programs, the manual includes methods for selecting target children and peers, social skills lessons, structured play activities, procedures for prompting and fading prompts. The procedures and lessons can also be used with children at-risk for developmental problems, or with children who are experiencing significant social interaction skill deficits.
