Play Connection For Children On The Autism Spectrum

Saturday February 23, 2013: 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm -- Pittsfield Branch: Program Room

Parents with children on the autism spectrum are invited to an open play with fun activities to explore. Follow your child's lead as they journey from building blocks to puppet play, through tunnels and more.

Dr. Rick Solomon and other staff from the P.L.A.Y. Project will be here to chat, foster interaction, and answer questions. Created by Dr. Solomon in 2001, the P.L.A.Y. Project is based on the DIR (Developmental, Individualized, Relationship-based) theory of Stanley Greenspan, MD, and emphasizes the importance of helping parents become their child's best play partner.

As an added bonus, local flavor and fragrance expert Michelle Krell Kydd will provide hands-on play activities for children and families to explore combinations of soothing scents.

Join us for open play activities! This event is for Preschool to Grade 5 with a parent or caregiver.
