By Ellen Viola Thalhamer III, for The Children’s Book Review
Published: September 8, 2010
“I’m a Daddy” was created in order to teach children with autism how to pretend to be a daddy. For children who are learning to pretend play and socially interact with their peers, this book will be helpful in guiding them through the motions of pretending to be a daddy. For those parents who focus on generalization, and receptive and expressive language, real life pictures associated with parents have been added to the story book.
About the author: Ellen Viola Thalhamer III is a teacher of Special Education, who specializes in teaching children on the autism spectrum. Over the years, she has learned how important social stories are for children with autism. She is hoping her book, which has been created much like a social story, will be a valuable resource for both parents and teachers.
