So often, parents and educators tell us that their child on the autism spectrum doesn’t seem to actually play or genuinely interact with them. Yes, their child plays. But not with them. Yes. their child interacts. But only when they want something - and not in a true back-and-forth way.
That’s because some important keys are missing.
We are excited to invite you to an extremely practical and easy-to-digest mini-workshop that will enable you to unleash your child or adult's social brain through a very particular type of play.
Based on some critical concepts from Kate C. Wilde’s new book, Autism Abracadabra, this dynamic and interactive mini-workshop walks you through the five “magic” questions that, if you ask while endeavoring to play with your child, will open the door to real social interaction and true interest on the part of your child by:
- Accessing their social attention span - not just their regular attention span
- Tapping into the interests that they already have (instead of trying to push them to be interested in something they’re not)
- Matching their processing speed
- Helping them to feel supported and safe - so that they can reach out to you
- Detecting their current neuro-state so that you can work with their brain and not against it
- Cultivating a play mindset
Complete with super clear explanations, useful handouts, and opportunities to begin implementation, the Autism Abracadabra mini-workshop will “change the game” so that playing games can actually happen!
