The Power of PLAY

Building Dynamic Relationships: Promoting Capacities for a Meaningful Life and Unlocking Potential for Individuals with Autism and other Social and Mental Health Challenges Across the Lifespan

Friday, March 8th is SOLD OUT

Play is a critical component of every intervention program targeting intensive physical, social, emotional, communicative and cognitive development. Play is not optional. In contrast, research reinforces the necessity of play for developmental growth throughout the lifespan, building functional capacities for thinking, relating, communicating and creativity as well as supporting competence, confidence and independence for ALL children. Play is the essence of childhood: motivating, fun, meaningful and spontaneous, filling hours of a child’s day and providing the vehicle (engagement) for relationship-based interactions that can be used to target any developmental capacity, self-help skill or academic concept.  Play is fundamental to the DIR-FCD Model where meaningful interactions tailored to a child’s individual needs are mobilized through the strength of relationships to enhance developmental growth and lifelong functioning.
