San Diego Times: Inclusive Play by Certified Autism Specialist, PT & Mom: Shannon Davis
Our founder, Shannon Davis was featured in the San Diego Times on how to incorporate Inclusive Play in honor of Autism Awareness month in April!
As an certified Autism Specialist, she gives insight and gives a couple of tips on how to integrate Inclusive Play for parents who might find trouble including so.
Below are some tips she recommends!
- A child with autism may be sensitive to sounds and textures. Therefore, teach your child to discuss a variety of locations, games and activities for playtime. Then encourage the child with autism to choose.
- A child with autism might ignore another child speaking to them. Therefore, teach your child about other forms of communication such as waving and a smile to say “hello.”
