Event description

Description

Richard Solomon, MD, founder of The PLAY Project, believes every young child with autism should have access to life-changing early intervention, by empowering their parents or caregivers. The PLAY Project strives to create a world where all children with autism receive early intervention services and parents choose the best treatment options for their child.

This professional development opportunity will provide you with an overview of the PLAY Project methods and principles along with case studies to gain immediate skills in helping children with autism. The workshop consists of case studies, video analysis of parent and child interaction, and group activities that develop your skills in play-based, developmental and behavioral techniques for engaging children with autism and other developmental delays.

Who will benefit:

Our intensive workshop will be of interest to administrators and policy makers involved with autism services, parents of children with autism, and providers who serve these children.This workshop can serve as a first step in pursuing the Certified PLAY Project Consultant credential.

In collaboration with:

The University of Vermont

Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward. Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and top 100 research university of a perfect size, large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship across all levels of study, from bachelor's to M.D. programs. Here, students'​ educational experience and activities are enriched by our location — from the energy and innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont. UVM provides students endless ways to explore the world, challenge ideas, and dig in on the most pressing issues of our time.

Adirondack Helping Hands

Adirondack Helping Hands is dedicated to providing the highest quality, strength based therapeutic approach to learning for children with developmental delays and diagnoses, while offering on-going communication to families. Parent involvement and participation are extremely vital to the success of this program. We are committed to working as a team to meet your child’s needs. We believe in a child-directed therapy approach. Our agency’s philosophy embraces that each child is unique and, therefore; our therapists adjust their therapy techniques to meet each child’s specific needs, not just their diagnosis. We understand that a child’s work is their play and is critical to a child’s development, so therapy is individually tailored with this in mind. Our philosophy is research and evidence based and follows the concepts outlined in the DIR/Floortime Model by Dr.Greenspan, which focuses on providing therapy to the whole child while simultaneously fostering healthy social-emotional development. Adirondack Helping Hands will be implementing The PLAY Project model soon! The PLAY Project is a parent implemented, intensive early intervention program for young children with autism that is evidence-based.
