What Is Play.Connect.Grow. Where Do I Begin

Is your ASD child getting the most out of their playtime?

The biggest challenge facing children with autism spectrum disorder is social communication.

Eye contact, language, attention span, nonverbal communication and social flexibility are just a few of the skills needed to succeed in the social world.

Increased eye contact and social referencing

To learn from others we must look at other people's faces.

Nonverbal communication

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.

Natural language development

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.

Longer interactive attention spans

The foundation for all social growth is a strong interactive attention span. This alone can change your child's life experience for the better!

Make social interaction and relationships enjoyable

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.
