Play Partners – Practical Ideas for Parents and other Caregivers

24 October 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am HKT


The Child Development Centre (CDC) is delighted to host Colette Ryan, ICDL expert level therapist and training leader in the DIRFloortime model, to deliver the ‘ICDL DIRFloortime® Training Programme’ workshops. The programme offers the world’s most recognised and respected DIRFloortime® training and certificates.

Play is important and fun, but sometimes difficult for individuals and their caregivers. This course will include practical ideas for shared play that respects the individual differences and developmental level of the child. It will include a PowerPoint, video examples, question and answer time, as well as some play time! The course will also include opportunities to learn about neurodiversity, gain an understanding of how individual differences affect relationships, and gain tools and strategies to further enhance development through play. This course is designed for parents, grandparents, siblings, helpers, au pairs, nannies and anyone else who plays with children.
