Which one activity can support your child's brain development across many areas, including cognitive, social-emotional, language and motor?
Play is one of the most powerful tools children use to develop the skills they need for learning and engaging in social interactions throughout their lives. Given the benefits of social play, the American Academy of Pediatrics published reports in 2007 and 2018 urging pediatricians to provide a "prescription" for play to the families whom they work with. During this interactive workshop, you will learn about the importance of play in your child's brain development and how you can purposefully and creatively use different types of social play to support this development. You will leave with concrete, simple, free/inexpensive ideas for expanding your child's play to create a richer learning experience. Time at the end will be provided for questions and answers/group discussion.
When children pretend, they're using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.
