During the workshop attendees will:

  • • Examine the importance of play;
  • • Learn various techniques to teach play;
  • • Discover tools to engage in play;
  • • Find out how to effectively incorporate peers; and
  • • Assess their effectiveness, as a parent, teacher or other professional, engaging children in this area.

Thea Furbert, Tomorrow’s Voices Board Chairwoman, states that “Play may come easily to many children, but can be a real struggle for others, especially those children with social skills deficits. As such, we felt it was important to discuss this topic and offer techniques to assist as a resource for parents and those who work with children, whether they have special needs or not.”

Admission is $25 for attendees and they will be provided with a Professional Development Certificate upon completion of the workshop. All proceeds benefit the Tomorrow’s Voices Autism Centre and the families it supports.
