This week we're looking at using picture activity schedules to increase play and social interactions. We spill the beans, break the ice, hide, seek, and jump into the wood chips all in the name of extending the literature on this excellent technology. And, without a visual schedule, we let Rob review an article with humorous results. Well, they would have been humorous, but he does all the editing.
