Guest Workshop: Autism, Play & Socialization with Peers


Accessing the joy and benefits of inclusive play poses unique challenges for children on the autism spectrum. This half-day workshop introduces the Integrated Play Groups® (IPG) model, an evidence-based practice for guiding children on the autism spectrum to participate with neuro-typical peers in mutually engaging social and imaginary play experiences. Fostering opportunities for socialization and creative expression in the culture of play with peers will be highlighted. Considering that what supports a child with autism supports all children, this workshop is for all educators hoping to improve their inclusive practices. Taught by world-renowned founder of Integrated Play Groups® Pamela Wolfberg and  autism researcher Suzanna Curtis. No prerequisite.
