About this Event
The PLAY Project Intensive Workshop for September 24th and 25th will be live-streamed in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) 9:30 am – 4:30 pm!
Richard Solomon, MD, founder of The PLAY Project, believes every young child with autism should have access to life-changing early intervention, by empowering their parents or caregivers. The PLAY Project strives to create a world where all children with autism receive early intervention services and parents choose the best treatment options for their child.
This professional development opportunity will provide you with an overview of the PLAY Project methods and principles along with case studies to gain immediate skills in helping children with autism. The workshop consists of case studies, video analysis of parent and child interaction, and group activities that develop your skills in play-based, developmental and behavioural techniques for engaging children with autism and other developmental delays.
Who will benefit:
Our intensive workshop will be of interest to administrators and policymakers involved with autism services, parents of children with autism, and providers who serve these children. This workshop can serve as a first step in pursuing the Certified PLAY Project Consultant credential.
After this workshop participants will be able to:
- Explain the 7 Circles of PLAY and how they relate to the PLAY Autism Intervention Program when working with children with ASD
- Define intensive autism intervention, including interventions that are categorized as play-based, developmental, and behavioural
- Identify techniques that help improve language, social skills, behaviour, development, and play skills of children with autism
- Describe Greenspan’s 6 Functional Developmental Levels (FDLs) and how they relate to The PLAY Project Autism Intervention
- Identify the behaviours and symptoms of children who have sensory processing challenges
- Describe how a child’s unique profile is created and develop a plan to improve the child’s social interactions based on this profile
- Identify developmental progress and PLAY Project methods and techniques through the review of video case studies
*Learning outcomes will be assessed after the Intensive Workshop by a PLAY Project Quiz and Satisfaction Survey
