Play fosters children’s development intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and creatively. Social Connections through Play groups are developed to meet these needs of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Age-appropriate groups are facilitated by experienced teachers and professionals. Groups are designed to support children with a variety of delays and challenges and engage them in learning social skills in a play-based format.

Based on the needs and goals of participants, groups may focus on:
• Gross-motor / Sensory-motor play
• Learning about being a good friend
• Play skills & group games
• Social pragmatic language skills
• Navigating peer relationships
• Social-cognitive awareness
• Identifying and managing feelings

Beware of agencies offering Virtual ADOS testing. Valid administration of ADOS-2 requires face-to-face, hands-on interaction between client & evaluator. This ensures accurate assessment of qualitative social interaction & social communication. Virtual administration of the ADOS-2 would exclude the necessary interaction required to examine those critical characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
While maintaining the fidelity of our assessments, evaluators at TAFA are taking every measure to ensure safety and health of our clients and staff during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
