Quality play time with parents can lead to improvements in skills such as communication, engagement, sensory awareness, cognitive ability and creativity. Each session of the parent-child playgroups will run for six weeks and will provide caregivers with play strategies and tips for engaging children with special needs to make playtime more fun and meaningful as well as exposure to a variety of play mediums and ideas for low-budget activities that can be done at home. Parents and children can practice their play skills in a supportive setting.
Sessions are conducted in English and Spanish concurrently for various age ranges between birth and 5 years of age and at various days and times to accommodate the needs of the community.
Space is limited, registration required. The series runs for six weeks starting October 12, 2016 through November 16, 2016. By registering for the first session, you will be registered for all six sessions.
