Social Skills Games for Children is Deborah Plummer's third book... It is an excellent resource full of inclusive games for smaller and larger groups... Each game also includes suggestions for adaptations... This is a really useful handbook and resource which can be used across a variety of play situations and contexts. It is equally useful for play workers, those running nurture groups, and mid-day and other supervisory staff in schools... Where psychologists might be consulting on inclusion or social behaviour change this book also provides and excellent resource.
