Early Childhood Autism Play Groups programs combine the award-winning, evidence-based, Integrated Play Groups®, Friend 2 Friend Autism Demystification®, and SCERTS® models. These comprehensive early childhood programs are peer play, educational programs that focus on developing the social-emotional, communication, and peer play competencies of the children participating.
Early Childhood Autism Play Groups programs are small, stable groups of 2 to 3 children who are ages 3 to 5 years old. Children may be registered for one or more, one hour sessions per week. Each group is lead by a professional Master Guide and one play guide. These highly trained professionals create individualized affinity-based peer play activities to enhance the children’s social, communication, emotional regulation and peer play needs.
Like all Friend 2 Friend Programs, Early Childhood Autism Play Groups are comprehensive programs that focus on the development of the social, communication, emotional regulation, and peer play competencies of all the children participating. As part of the Early Childhood Autism Play Groups program, we offer the following services:
