Play Connection with Therapy Dogs for Children on the Autism Spectrum
Sunday February 2, 2014: 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
This event is intended for preschool - grade 5 with an adult
If you are a parent with a child on the autism spectrum, here’s an opportunity to explore the possibilities.
Dr. Rick Solomon, from the P.L.A.Y. Project, will be available to chat with parents and children. Kids will have a chance to pet therapy dogs, or find a quiet space to play with a variety of fun toys.
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.
