Social play is about relating to others, playing and making friends - all of which are key elements for social inclusion, adjustment and well-being. "The Social Play Record" is a practical resource for assessing and developing social play in children with autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) or difficulties with social interaction. This toolkit is designed to be used collaboratively with children, parents, carers and practitioners. It is suitable for assessing children of all learning abilities and stages of development, from early infancy to adolescence, and includes photocopiable assessment and intervention materials. The toolkit is divided into user-friendly sections, including: a guidance section, which also gives information on what constitutes social play, its significance, development and how to address social interaction difficulties; an assessment section for recording stages of social play and key abilities, such as independent and peer play, friendship and advanced group skills; an intervention section, which gives step-by-step directions for developing key social play skills. Parents, teachers and professionals working with or caring for a child with social interaction difficulties will find this toolkit an essential assessment resource.

Recent computer-based tools for project planning and management focus on user-friendliness and interconnectivity. However, these programs function on the Critical Path Method, or CPM, which was created in the 1950s. These programs, which involve simplistic models and methods, ignore the fact that the underlying computations on which they function have become woefully inadequate for the complex projects of today. The product of nearly a decade of work, The Dynamic Progress Method: Using Advanced Simulation to Improve Project Planning and Management provides an overview of the research conducted while illustrating some of the issues with current approaches. It presents the Dynamic Progress Method (DPM), an innovative simulation-based approach to project management. It also includes instructions on how to use the accompanying DPM-based simulation tool pmBLOX to plan, manage, and analyze projects. This groundbreaking book is a must-have resource for project planning and management. It introduces a new and better way of planning, estimating, and managing projects that corrects some of the fundamental flaws of the CPM. It brings the computational integrity of planning simulations up to speed with modern needs, making it useful not only to current project managers but also to students who will become project managers.

MAKE YOUR COMPANY A FORCE FOR GOOD You're ambitious. You're not afraid to take risks. You want to bring about positive social change. And while your peers have left a trail of failed start-ups in their wake, you want to initiate change from within an established company, where you can have a more far-reaching, even global impact. Welcome to the club--you're a social intrapreneur.

So how do you get started and maintain your momentum?

Use language and stories to connect your initiative to your organization's mission, strategy, and values. * Who will make this innovation possible? Identify the decision makers you need to persuade and the potential resisters you need to steer around. * How can you mobilize your supporters to collaborate on your innovation? Use the online and offline tools and platforms that best support your initiative. This book is a road map for intrapreneurs seeking to reshape their companies into drivers of positive change.

By 2050, global population will increase from 7 to more than 9 billion people, and this will increase demands on food and water systems already under pressure from climate change and over-use. Meanwhile, Africa is the continent where the largest proportion of people is currently living in poverty: an estimated one in three Africans go hungry. At the same time, the agricultural potential of Africa is enormous. Water, Food and Sustainable Agriculture in Southern Africa seeks answers to the question: 'If centralised irrigated agriculture has failed in Africa, then what are the solutions that will increase food security to reduce poverty while sustainably managing water and conserving other environmental values?' Food security means much more than a country producing sufficient calories for the populace. Food security is about ensuring the most vulnerable have the means to produce, and that the food is of sufficient nutritional value. Water governance is also a central concern in sustainable agriculture. With better governance, there is high potential for poverty reduction through water interventions.
