The Parent as the Expert

We consider you, the parent, to be the expert on your child. Our Home Consultants are here to guide you so that you can more effectively assist your child with autism to move up the developmental ladder, increase language, and improve social skills. Our goal is for you to be your child’s best P.L.A.Y. partner!

Why The P.L.A.Y. Project?®

Parents spend more time with their children than all of their teachers and therapists combined. As your child’s best P.L.A.Y. partner, you can provide many hours of high quality intervention throughout the day. Our Consultants show you practical ways of making every interaction with your child a growing and learning experience. Bath-time, meals, outdoor play: each of these daily routines can be used to help your child with autism build meaningful relationships.

Home visits allow the Consultant to see your child in the place where he/she is most comfortable, so the Consultant can see how he/she acts most naturally. The Home Consultant will videotape segments of the home visits to monitor your child’s progress and give suggestions for more effective techniques. This allows the Home Consultant and your family to design and implement an individualized plan for your child.
