Playgroups for Children 2 to 5 Years of Age - Spring Monday Afternoon Session

Quality play time with parents can lead to improvements in skills such as communication, engagement, sensory awareness, cognitive ability and creativity. Each session of the parent-child playgroups will run for seven weeks and will provide caregivers with play strategies and tips for engaging children with special needs to make playtime more fun and meaningful as well as exposure to a variety of play mediums and ideas for low-budget activities that can be done at home. Caregivers will also get expert advice and answers to questions from therapists who will visit the group.

Sessions are conducted in English and Spanish concurrently for various age ranges between birth and 5 years of age and at various days and times to accommodate the needs of the community.

For more information and to register for one of the sessions, contact Toy Program Coordinator Lisa Anand at 213.252.8348 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Program made possible by a contribution from the Fred and June MacMurray Foundation.

Transitioning from High School to Adulthood


As a parent, have you ever wondered…

  • Why does my child move differently from other kids?
  • Why does he spin around or bump into things?
  • Why does he tune out or seem disturbed in certain environments?
  • Why does his mood change rapidly or unpredictably?
  • Why won’t he touch or taste certain things?

These are all sensory-based struggles that many of our children face. Come attend a two-hour workshop with Katherine Abbey, M.A., OTR/L, Occupational Therapist, to learn more about the cause of some of these challenges as well as various strategies to help our children regulate their bodies and movements, and increase tolerance to sensitivities. Gain ideas you can incorporate in daily life and playtime with your child who is between the ages of birth to 5. There will be a PowerPoint, hands-on activities and discussion.

Contact the Koch-Young Resource Center at 213.252.5600 or kyrc@lanterman.org for more information. Reserve your space by June 10, 2014.      

NO CHILDREN PLEASE.
