Collaborative Play Therapy for ASD & ADHD Primary Teachers Webinar 22.11.2021

In this form of therapy, teachers will learn how children work together and are assigned roles – the engineer who has the instructions, the supplier who has the bricks, and the builder who puts the model together. You will acquire practical strategies to enable the children take turns in assuming each responsibility. You will learn the methods which encourage collaboration and interaction with other children.
