Event description

Description

This one day short course will focus on specific techniques to engage children with autism in play. Participants will be exposed to theoretical underpinnings of Learn to Play Therapy. The goal of the training is to deepen participants’ understanding and experience with how to engage children with autism in play. Play ability is a deficit in this group of children and often these children present with behaviour problems and social and language delays. Building the ability to play with these children has a large impact on their functioning. However, engaging these children in play is a skill that requires training. As part of their training, participants will be assisted to assess the play ability of a child with autism. The course will highlight specific presenting issues and identify ways to work with children with autism as well as to when to include family members. As part of skill building participants will engage in experiential activities, complete case studies and discuss video presentations. The course will highlight developmental considerations.

Participants will receive resources on USB stick.

All participants who complete all aspects of the program will receive an attendance Certificate.

This course will be run by Professor Karen Stagnitti, at the Deakin University, Geelong, Waterfront Campus, 28th November, 2018.
