Autism and Play: Learning through Play, Learning to Play

Recommended for parents and carers of children with Autism aged 0 to 7 years.

  • Part 2: 26th March 2021 – 9.30am to 11.00am

Play is an important part of childhood, but we know that Autism can affect the development of skills needed for play.  For this reason, play is one of the core intervention domains of First Steps for Autism therapy—not only learning through play but learning to play! In this two-part webinar series, we will explore:

Part 1:  The Importance of Play – An Introduction

  • Why children need to play
  • How play develops – The Social Stages and Types of Play

Part 2:  Supporting Learning through Play

  • Strategies for building play skills
