P.L.A.Y. Project Teaches Just That to Children with Autism

Posted: Monday, August 23, 2010 - 12:12


Play and Language for Autistic Youngsters (P.L.A.Y. Project) is a therapy tool created by Dr. Richard Solomon. The Reeds, parents of a son with autism, discovered the PLAY Project through their local Easter Seals. P.L.A.Y. Project Coordinator Shana Wirth, explains, “We go into the family's home, and we train the parents to be the primary teacher for their child; to do the work everyday with their child."

The focus of PLAY is for parents to spend at least three hours a day with their child; it’s about connecting with the child. The Reeds’ intent is to create longer and longer periods of connection with their son.
