Why Play Works Intensive Early Childhood Program?

Because play works! The Intensive Early Childhood Program for children ages 2-6 years with a diagnosis of Autism is a half or full-day program held at the Play Works Center for Autism Services! Motivation is critical to building new skills, and research shows that children learn most naturally through play, because play IS a child's work! Play Works offers an evidence-based, collaborative model where all outpatient pediatric disciplines work together for the best individualized treatment for each learner (speech, OT, PT, ABA). The Intensive Early Childhood Program offers opportunities for exposure to neurotypical peer models during playgroups! We are housed in a brand new state of the art clinic with 5 individual therapy rooms, a fine motor/art room, and a large sensory motor gym!
