Social and Play Skills

Play is a naturally occurring phenomenon that promotes a child's engagement and learning, independent performance and social inclusion. Play is the foundation of learning to socialize with others. Typically play happens voluntarily, often spontaneously, and offers internal reinforcement and rewards. Research has shown that play may help develop cognitive, social, linguistic, and emotional development. Here you will find resources that outline the theory of play and supporting strategies for teaching your child some of those foundational skills for play both independently and with peers.
The resources below include tip sheets designed to address students' challenges in social skill development and social understanding.  The goal is to support parents in promoting their child’s growth in this important area of development.
