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
