Today Autism Empowerment Radio welcomes Dr. Michael Brooke to talk with us about helping youth, teens and adults improve their social skills and conversation through a game that he developed called Chime In: The Conversation Game. Chime In: The Conversation Game is an easy-to-learn, life-changing game for getting anyone who struggles socially on the path to fitting in and making friends. Players learn how to follow the give-and-take of social conversation and have fun in the process. It was designed to be appropriate for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, non-verbal learning disability, attention deficit disorder (ADHD) or social phobia. Other groups that struggle with social skills such as individuals with oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, traumatic brain injury, or dementia may also benefit from Chime In. Dr. Brooke is a licensed psychologist in the states of Washington and Oregon and grew up in the Big Sky Country of Montana where he enjoyed rafting, camping fishing, piano, gymnastics and Dungeons and Dragons. He graduated magna cum laude from University of Oregon and received his doctorate at Rutgers University. Dr. Brooke regularly works with children and adults on the spectrum, ages 12 to adult and shares a practice in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA with his wife, Karlaina. New Social Skills Groups in the Portland metro area are starting in Spring 2014. There are separate groups for middle school, high school and adults.
