Join in the Play
Dear our Donors,
We would like to thank you for your support to our project. Thank you for your understanding that no matter what label has been giving to our child we always remember that he or she is a unique individual with his or her own strengths and challenges.
We organized a Social Skills Group for children who have social communication difficulties. We have used the following programs and strategies: Playing Together! Let's Make Friends! Make the Most of Music! Take Turns Together, Make the Connection with People Games, and Look at Me strategy.
Penndco children with autism spectrum disorder or social communication difficulties enjoy in the play, and they learn how to pay attention to adult or peer, how to talk, how to give people eye contact, and how to interact with people and children.
Our children prefer to play alone, and our goal is to teach them social skills and to help them to interact with each other. Dean is always on the move, and we help him to play with his peer in the blocks area. Benjamin's parents are worried because Benjamin isn't talk and he does not respond to his name. However, Benjamin has an interest to participate in a fun activity (bubbles time) with his peers. Patrick likes to participate in a music activity, and he enjoys his movements with music. We help Patrick to use the words and signs to communicate his wants and needs.
Our children enjoy our Social Skills Library, and they have a choice to listen a story. David prefers his favorite book David Goes to School. Maksim prefers his favorite book Hands Are Not for Hitting. Penndco specialists encourage our children to demonstrate their preferences. Playing together and learning together is our main goal for helping children to develop their social skills and communication.
In conclusion, we would like to say you our special thanks from our professional team and from our families for your generous support.
