HOME LEARNERS PLAY GROUPS PROGRAM
are specialized groups offered once per week in 90-minute sessions for children ages 6 through 12. Under the guidance of highly trained professionals, the programs are designed to meet the social needs of children who are home or distance learners (Self Design, EBUS etc.).
Each group consists of 5-6 children. Novice players are children with autism or related social communication and peer play needs. And expert players are children with advanced social, communication and peer play skills. Weekly play themes are created around the player’s affinities, and are designed to enhance academic learning while engaging in play with peers. These groups bring together children with varying abilities and skills, to play, make friends while at the same time supporting their social and emotional needs in the true spirit of play and friendships.
The sessions are held only at our Play Centre in New Westminster.
