Play: A building block to child development (Online)
Play and Learn
Parents of children with additional needs
The important role of early play in Learning & Development

Research shows that play is a critical part of the way children learn. Many families, however, find that play is harder when their child has a delay or disability. In this workshop, we will explore some new ideas of supporting your child's play and activities and toys that are good to encourage play.

Join us to share new ideas to support your child’s early play.

*This session was called "they're just playing' in Term 2

In this workshop, we will talk about questions such as:

Where does play fit in with the goals I have for my child to be ready for school?
How do we engage a reluctant player?
What are the different stages of play and where your child might be on that stage of development (& how to move to the next step)?
What to do when other children don’t want to play with your child?

For parents, family members and primary carers of children aged 6 months-5/6 years old

- Tuesday 22 September; 8pm to 9.30pm (1.5 Hours) via Zoom

Further details will be provided closer to the date. You will need a good internet connection to attend.

This workshop is for parents, primary cares and family members of children with disability or delays only. At this stage, we don't have the capacity to accommodate professionals in this session.

This session will be repeated once per Term through 2020
