Every parent, whether they have a child on the spectrum or not worry about their child’s future. For a parent with a child on the autism spectrum this can feel even more daunting. Helping your child communicate more clearly and learn more efficiently can make all of the difference for their future.
Eye contact, joint attention, attention span, imitation, nonverbal communication, and social flexibility are just a few of the skills needed to succeed in the social world. Play is a great, and very natural way to learn these essential skills.
To learn from others we must look at other people's faces.
Roughly 75% of clear communication is NON-verbal, words alone don't get it done. Gestures and imitation are crucial to succeeding in relationships and learning.
Learning in a play setting allows your child to “pick up” language in a fun context and use it spontaneously, giving it more meaning and value.
The foundation for all social growth is a strong interactive attention span. This alone can change your child's life experience for the better!
Play is, has and always will be the main way in which we learn to be social beings. In order to do this we have to be internally motivated to seek out interaction.
