Learn to Play for the S-LP: Taking Knowledge into Practice

The language used in the description reflects the language of the session.

This session will be based on the fundamentals of the Learn to Play program by Dr. Karen Stagnitti. These fundamental play skills are the foundation of their social and academic success and are an important consideration in any treatment plan of a child with social and language concerns. The course will discuss how to take the knowledge of different types of players and core developmental play skills and apply it to assessment and treatment in a variety of settings with a variety of populations in a fun and functional way.

Learning objectives:

  • Review different types of players and the six core skills of imaginative play.
  • Understand how to assess and interpret results related to language and social skill development for children of all ages, including children with complex developmental delays/disorders.
  • Learn how to take assessment information to develop an effective treatment plan.
