Play: A Building Block of Child Development • Workshop

Wednesday 8 November @ 8:00 pm 9:30 pm AEDT

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 for 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.

During this session, we will discuss:

  • How does play fit in with getting your child to be ready for school
  • How do we engage a reluctant player
  • What are the different stages of play
  • Recognising your child’s stage of play development and how to support them into the next step
  • What to do when other children don’t want to play with your child

There will be time for questions at the end of the session.

This session is for

Parents, primary carers and family members of children with disability, delay or neurodivergence aged 6 months-6 years.
