Play and early communication skills (verbal and non-verbal) lay the foundation for higher-level academic and conversational skills. We have created the Early Social Learning Program to work on key concepts of social development to give students with social thinking challenges a head start in learning skills for relating to their families and peers. Play is the avenue through which children learn to relate to others. The Early Social Learning Program teaches children to play in novel ways and facilitates play and language development while emphasizing relationship development and connection with adults and peers.
