This e-Seminar offers practical guidance for helping parents facilitate the play and communication skills of their child with autism. While the e-Seminar focuses on children on the spectrum, the strategies presented will be helpful for all children with deficits in the area of play. Coaching Parents in How to Play explores the connections between play, interaction and language at different developmental stages and presents milestones for four types of play: social routines, exploratory, functional and pretend play. Participants learn developmentally appropriate interactive strategies for sharing with parents to help them build their child’s play and language skills during fun play activities. The e-Seminar also offers helpful information on facilitating peer play in children with ASD.
