Friends At Play

Friends At Play“Friends at Play” is a therapeutic program that provides social skills training groups for children with developmental delays. Participants have specific delays in the areas of social initiation, social communication, cooperative play, and/or developing social relationships. The program is based upon the philosophy that children with special needs are able to develop these skills in a naturalistic, play-based setting with their peers (disabled and non-disabled). The rationale for developing this program was based upon a lack of social skills training groups in the community that were inclusive, yet developmentally appropriate for regional center consumers to participate successfully with non-disabled peers.
