Dr Rick's book now available!

   Every  parent wants to discover the potential within his or her child. For  parents of children with autism, The PLAY Project can help. Autism: The  Potential Within describes the journey of Jacob Grant – a composite of  all young children with autism – and his family as they learn The PLAY  Project approach. The book follows Jacob along the path from early  diagnosis until entry into kindergarten. Through a series of office  visits, “Dr. Rick” empowers Jim and Julie Grant to be Jacob’s best play  partners. He also guides them on how to use Jacob’s misbehavior –  tantrums in public, sibling rivalry, picky eating and sleep problems –  to help him learn appropriate behavior and social skills. Over time,  Jacob moves from nonverbal to constantly talking, and from  self-isolation to being warmly connected. Based on scientific research  and decades of practice, this guide provides parents and professionals  with a new way of working and interacting with young children with  autism.
