Therapeutic Family Play Session For Children With Autism 45877

When a child enters the realm of play, he also enters a realm of potential and possibilities. Playing isn't just about having fun - it is an opportunity to develop and practice physical and social skills, a healthy and necessary part of human growth. Children with an autism spectrum disorder often have trouble learning some of these necessary skills.
Family play therapy teaches families to help children with autism develop gross and fine motor skills, as well as social interaction skills. Experienced specialists help families develop play therapy sessions with carefully chosen and sometimes specially adapted toys to address the specific developmental needs of a child. The family is closely involved so that therapeutic play can continue, and learned skills can be reinforced, in a home environment.
Play therapy as a family is a fun, positive opportunity to engage with a child in need, but families who want to provide this kind of specialized attention to help their child develop physical and social skills may have significant extra challenges along the way, such as low income, and minimal access to human services funding sources.
You can help. $25 provides one hour of a therapeutic family play session focused on building skills through play for children with autism. The family is also given access to a toy lending library so that this helpful interaction can continue at home.


The National Lekotek Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing children who have disabilities access to the benefits of play experiences. Lekotek's play development model consists of professional play sessions, the prescriptive use of toys and strong family involvement.
