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 inclusive peer play, educational programs that focus on developing the social-emotional, communication, and peer play competencies of all the children participating.
Early Childhood Autism Play Groups programs are small, stable groups of children ages 3 to 5 that meet regularly under the guidance of highly trained professionals to play and make friends. Each group consists of no more than five children (1 to 2 children with autism and 2 to 3 of their peers).
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:
