This first session will focus on Functional Developmental Levels. This is the measure of skills they use to assess progress in PLAY Project. Learn where your child falls across the 6 levels, and how to help them grow by playing at just the right level.
- Session 2 (7/25): Creating Your Child’s Unique Profile: Sensory-Motor Profile – Part 2 of our speaker series will focus on understanding your child’s unique sensory profile. We’ll look at the 8 (yes 8!) senses and work to understand how each child processes them. Does your child seek out or avoid certain inputs? Are they overreactive or under reactive? We’ll discuss how to use sensory input to help them achieve optimal levels of arousal for learning and engagement.
- Session 3 (8/29): Creating Your Child’s Unique Profile: Comfort Zone Activities – The final part of our speaker series will focus on Comfort Zone Activities. These are the activities which children will engage in deeply and tune out others. Learn how to delve down the rabbit hole with your child and create joyful play opportunities to foster growth of foundational skills such as attention, regulation, and engagement.
