Playgroups for Children 2 to 5 Years of Age - Spring Friday 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).
