Quality play time with parents can lead to improvements in skills such as communication, engagement, sensory awareness, cognitive ability and creativity.

Both parent-child playgroup sessions start on Monday, September 10, 2012 and will run for six weeks. The morning session is from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and the afternoon session is from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., at Lanterman.

The playgroups 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.
