Keys to the Treasure Chest – How Play, Socialization and Imagination Enhance Learning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTIONS:

Obstacles to Opportunities: An Inside View on Opening Doors Empowering Students with ASD’s to Succeed! – Stephen Shore, Ed.D.

Going against conventional wisdom, this presentation examines how deficits and challenges so pervasively attributed to autism can be re-framed as strengths. Employing an autobiographical structure combined with experiences of others with autism, participants will come away with practical solutions for considering characteristics of autism as potential springboards to success in education from preschool to post graduate, employment, effective self-advocacy, meaningful engagement in the community as building blocks for leading a fulfilling and productive life.

How Play, Socialization and Imagination Enhance Learning for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders – Pamela Wolfberg, Ph.D.

This seminar addresses the unique needs of children on the autism spectrum in the areas of peer socialization, play and imagination, and inclusion in childhood culture. Participants will become familiar with the principles and practices of the Integrated Play Groups® (IPG) model. IPG is an empirically validated model designed to support children with autism in mutually engaging experiences with typical peers and siblings in natural settings. Based on award-winning research, the IPG model has been found to be effective in enhancing socialization, communication, play and imagination in children across the spectrum representing diverse ages, abilities, socioeconomic groups, languages and cultures. Extensions of the IPG model include innovations as sensory integration, drama, art, video and other creative activities of high interest for children, teens and adults.
