Play and Social Learning

Back to Top

Children on the autism spectrum may play in ways that are different to their friends. It is during play that children build and refine their social skills. This short workshop helps participants understand why their child’s play is different and provides them with ideas to help the child develop:

  • Playing with toys
  • Imitation and imagination
  • Creative play, playing with others & turn taking
  • Sharing & turn taking
